British pop star Jessie J has cancelled an upcoming show in New Zealand after rehearsals for her tour over-ran.
The Price Tag hitmaker was due to kick off a series of international dates in Auckland in Tuesday (28Feb12), but the concert at the city's Vector Arena has now been axed due to production delays.
The cancellation means the start of the tour has been pushed back and it will now start in Brisbane, Australia on 1 March (12).
A statement from the star reads, "You guys have no idea how disappointed I am that I am unable to start my tour how I intended to, by meeting my amazing New Zealand fans. I promise I will be back as soon as I can to give you a show you'll all remember. Thank you for all your support and once again I am so very sorry."
It marks the second time Jessie J has scrapped plans to visit New Zealand - she previously axed a promotional visit to the country last April (11) due to "family commitments".
