Kylie Minogue has rescheduled the shows for the 15th and 16th due to a moderate respiratory tract infection. The new dates are Sunday the 21st and Monday the 22nd. She had pulled out early from Saturday the 13th of January's show, Dannii then appearing on stage to perform Kids as Kylie tearfully said goodbye and promised to make it up to her fans.
Kylie said today: "Firstly, I'd like to apologise to those who attended last Saturday night's show at the M.E.N. Arena; I was hoping to feel better as the day progressed unfortunately the opposite was true. I'm sorry too for all those inconvenienced by the postponements.
I would just like to clarify the situation after seeing false reports in today's press claiming that I had ignored doctor’s instructions. I have not at any stage ignored the advice of my doctors, in fact I postponed two shows this week on their advice in order to be healthy enough to finish the "Showgirl Homecoming" tour.
Nearly all of my crew were hit by this terrible 'flu during the course of this tour and despite my best efforts I too succumbed last week.
I am now overjoyed to announce that I have been declared fit to return to the stage on Thursday and we will now be adding three replacement shows next week so as not to disappoint anyone!"
