Scottish singer Susan Boyle, who found fame on the ‘Britain's Got Talent’ UK television show in 2009, has cancelled her scheduled appearance in Abu Dhabi this week, citing “logistical production difficulties”.
The 52-year-old singer announced in October she would play her first gig in the UAE at Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Friday, December 13. However, a statement on the ticketing website Ticketmaster said the concert had now been cancelled.
“AUH Live and Susan Boyle's Management sincerely regret to announce the cancellation of Susan Boyle's show at the Zayed Cricket Stadium on the 13th December 2013, due to logistical production difficulties that prevent the show going ahead at this time,” the statement said.
Although she came second on the 2009 talent show, she has launched an international career, has sold around 20m albums and has amassed a fortune of around $35m.
Earlier this week, Boyle said in an interview she has a form of autism known as Asperger's syndrome, a mild form of autism marked by social awkwardness and narrow interests that can make relationships challenging. Boyle said the diagnosis came as a relief after years of believing she had brain damage.
"I think people will treat me better because they will have a much greater understanding of who I am and why I do the things I do," she was quoted as saying in an interview with The Observer newspaper.
