Tina Turner postpones London and Sheffield shows

Singer is ill - but shows will be rescheduled

Tina Turner has postponed two shows on her current UK tour due to illness.

The star will not be performing at tomorrow’s (March 11) gig at the London O2 Arena and Thursday’s (March 12) show at the Sheffield Arena after contracting respiratory flu.

The London show has been rescheduled to take place on May 3, while the Sheffield date has been switched to May 5. Original tickets will remain valid.

Before falling ill, earlier this month Tina Turner kicked off a stint at the London O2 Arena with a spectacular live set-up, playing a “greatest hits” set.
