Toni Braxton's Las Vegas residency cancelled

Sick singer needs to focus on her health

Toni Braxton's Las Vegas residency cancelled
The remaining shows in the two-year Las Vegas residency of R’n’B singer Toni Braxton have been cancelled due to her continuing ill heath.

As previously reported, Braxton’s shows were put on hold in April after she was hospitalised for chest pains. Her run at the Flamingo Las Vegas was due to resume June 6, but it has been revealed the singer is now focusing on her health and will play no further shows.

Braxton, who filed for bankruptcy in 1998, has had previous health problems, and has been treated for pericarditis, a viral inflammation of the heart.

She is a six-time Grammy award winner and her most famous hits include ‘You’re Makin’ Me High’ and ‘Un-break My Heart’.
