Heavy rain prevents the princess of pop star's outdoor show in Sydney, Australia from going ahead...

Heavy rain washed out a scheduled BRITNEY SPEARS appearance in SYDNEY.

The star was due to play a show at the 10,000 capacity Fox Studios in Sydney (April 18).

However, according to the Australian news service,, the bad weather meant that equipment that had been set up earlier this week was damaged, leaving organisers to make a last minute change of plans.

She instead performed at the nearby indoor venue, City Live.
