Miley Cyrus Cancels Concert Half Hour Before Start Time

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Miley Cyrus backed out of a concert at the very last moment last night.

A rep for the artist confirms that Cyrus came down with a case of the flu and was forced to postpone a show in Charlotte as a result, just 30 minutes prior to when it was scheduled to begin.

"Due to illness, Miley Cyrus’ “Bangerz” tour date scheduled for tonight, April 7, Time Warner Cable Arena Charlotte has been cancelled," read a statement in response to the incident.

"Cyrus has been diagnosed with flu and doctors have ordered her to rest. She will not be able to perform as scheduled. Refunds for Charlotte tickets will be available at the point of ticket purchase. Tickets purchased online or by phone will be automatically refunded."

According to the same statement, Miley will perform tonight in Raleigh.

The singer has had a very tough week.

Her dog, Floyd, was killed by a coyote and Cyrus has been openly been in "unbearable pain" over the tragedy.

She actually sang to a statue of the dog in Brooklyn over the weekend and has wondered via Twitter whether she'll ever be able to love again.

Often crying in concert over the past few days, Cyrus has said the tears have negatively affected her voice.

We wish her a speedy, full recovery.

First of all, had she personally supervised the dog when outdoors or had one of her lackies do so, the dog would still be alive because coyotes are generally shy creatures who won't come near a human. As for her cancelling the concert, gee - I didn't even miss her.
