Tina Turner has been forced to postpone two concerts this week because she has flu.
The 69-year-old’s fifth show at London’s O2 Arena tomorrow night and the concert scheduled for the following night at Sheffield Arena have been rescheduled, organisers said.
Turner has contracted respiratory flu and doctors advised her to take six days of rest to fully recover.
The O2 Arena date will now be on Sunday, May 3 and the Sheffield Arena concert will be on Tuesday, May 5.
A statement said: “Tina always wants to give 100% and has been overwhelmed by the reaction from her UK fans at the gigs last week.
“She regrets this decision to postpone and the inconvenience to all those fans with tickets but wants to make sure each concert she does is memorable for everyone.”
Concert promoters Marshall Arts advised ticket holders for London and Sheffield to retain their tickets, as they will be valid for the rescheduled dates.
Those unable to attend can get refunds from the point of purchase from Monday, March 16 through to Monday, April 6.

All other dates on Turner’s European tour are not affected.
