Illness forces Whitney Houston to postpone gigs

Wednesday April 7, 2010

Comeback queen Whitney Houston has postponed three concerts at the start of her UK tour due to illness.

The 46-year-old was reportedly diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection by doctors in Paris, where she had already cancelled a concert.

Two Manchester gigs that were lined up for this week have since been rescheduled for June, while her Glasgow show on Sunday has been moved to May 1.

"Doctors visited Whitney late last night in Paris and confirmed that she was suffering from an upper respiratory infection," reads a statement from her record label.

"Upon medical advice, Whitney has been advised that she cannot perform to allow her time to recover."
