KELLY Osbourne, the singer and fly-on-the-wall television star, has cancelled tonight’s T On The Fringe show in Edinburgh because of ill health.
The daughter of the rocker Ozzy Osbourne had a string of concerts lined up for her European tour, including the V2003 festival in Staffordshire this weekend, and was due to perform at Edinburgh Corn Exchange.
A statement issued on the singer’s behalf said that Osbourne had cancelled the rest of her European tour up to September. It said: "This is due to health reasons. Many apologies to all concerned."
Dave Corbet, of promoters DF Concerts, said: "We are disappointed that the Kelly Osbourne show has been cancelled, but we wish her a speedy recovery and hope that she will return to perform for her Scottish fans in the future.
"We still have an incredible line-up at T on the Fringe over the next two and a half weeks and we hope that music fans continue to enjoy the rest of the shows."
Osbourne found worldwide fame when her family agreed to appear in the MTV show The Osbournes.
Within months she had launched a singing career, scoring a hit last year with a cover of Madonna’s Papa Don’t Preach.
However, she was recently dropped by the label which signed her, although she has continued to perform and was on the bill for Robbie Williams’s recent dates at Knebworth.
Osbourne had been due to present this week’s edition of the BBC1 music show Top Of The Pops, and next month was to round off her live appearances by joining her father for his shows at Wembley Arena in London and at Birmingham’s NEC.
George Kyle, the head of sponsorship at Tennent’s Lager, said: "Obviously it’s a disappointment. However, once again T on the Fringe has an unbeatable line-up, which I’m sure will delight audiences."
