Kylie Minogue CANCELS Sydney show due to a debilitating illness

Earlier this week, Kylie Minogue cancelled her upcoming interviews to ‘rest her voice’, but made no indication her scheduled performances were at risk.

But on Tuesday, the 49-year-old pop sensation cancelled her Nova Red Room performance in Sydney, confirming her loyal fan’s mounting fears.

In a remorseful Twitter announcement, Kylie wrote: ‘I have tried my best to get better in time but alas, Mother Nature needs some time to get me better.’

‘Mother Nature needs some time’: Remorseful Kylie Minogue CANCELS Sydney show due to a debilitating illness… days after she was compared to a ‘Dolly Parton tribute act’

The ‘Loco-motion’ singer’s tweet was shared in full alongside statements from Nova and tour promoter Liberator/BMG. 

‘Hey #NovasRedRoom fans. I’m so sorry to have to let you know that I can’t make the Red Room show this week,’ Kylie wrote.

‘I have a throat infection and have been advised by my Doctor to rest… I’m so sorry. I’ll reschedule as soon as I can and I promise we’ll make up for it Xx.’

Nova said: ‘Although we know our winners and fans will be disappointed that they won’t be able to experience this special Nova’s Red Room, Kylie’s health is the main priority and we wish her well with her recovery.’

Liberator/BMG wrote: ‘Liberator/BMG regret to advise that on doctor’s orders Kylie’s Nova Red Room performance, scheduled for this Thursday in Sydney, is unable to proceed.’   

Days earlier, shortly after an awkward one-on-one with embattled Nine star Karl Stefanovic, Kylie cancelled all remaining interviews for the duration of her trip.

She had previously cited illness, with Tuesday’s statement confirming a throat infection was to blame. 

The fallout from her recent BBC performance – where some fans described her as a ‘Dolly Parton tribute act’ – had nothing to do with the cancellation. 

Likewise, the timing of the cancellation and Karl’s heavily criticised conduct during their 60 Minutes interview on Sunday appears to be a coincidence.

Viewers branded the Two Million Dollar Man’s chat a ‘trainwreck’ and called for someone more ‘professional’ to take the helm.

While Nine could perhaps have found someone more ‘professional,’ they would not have been able to find someone more costly – Karl is their highest paid talent.

Ouch! The fallout from her recent BBC performance - where some fans described her as a 'Dolly Parton tribute act' - had nothing to do with the cancellation

During the chat, he made Kylie visibly uncomfortable, describing her as a ‘hot 50-year-old’ and suggesting she should stop dating ‘incredibly good-looking d**kheads’.   

Despite the fact 50th birthdays are rarely greeted with excitement, Karl also made the odd decision to bring out a cake for Kylie’s big milestone anyway.

This decision was in spite of the knowledge the songstress’ was born on the 28th of May.
