Thousands of Mariah Carey and Fergie fans have been left heartbroken after the pop
superstars' gigs were cancelled yesterday. Fans have been left fuming at the news they
will no longer get to see Carey, the world's number one-selling female artist, and the
Black Eyed Peas' Fergie. The duo had been set to perform at Divas in Dubai at Festival
City next Thursday.
However, organisers Midas Promotions, Blue Giraffe Entertainment and On Golden Pond Films
yesterday said in a statement: "We regret to announce the Divas in Dubai concert event is
being rescheduled to a later date in the Fall 2008." A producer for the show said: "Mariah
and Fergie are disappointed that they won't be able to perform. They had scheduled this one
special event in their calendars and were looking forward to performing for the Dubai fans."
Mel Tyler, of Midas Promotions added that, "The extremely compressed time frame along with
unforeseen logistical complications compelled us to move the event to later in the year to
ensure a show commensurate with the level of success of these world class artists and the
people of Dubai."
One very disappointed Mariah Carey fan told 7Days: "I'm so upset. When I heard Mariah was
coming to Dubai I couldn't believe my luck. But now the concert has been cancelled and it's
so annoying, I was really looking forward to it. I just hope the organisers sort out these
new dates as soon as possible."
Ticket holders have been told they will receive a full refund if they contact the on-line
ticket outlet which sold them.
