The Cabaret star was scheduled to perform her An Intimate Evening with Liza Minnelli shows at the London Palladium on 20 September (15) and at Sheffield's City Hall on 22 September (15).

During the shows, Minnelli was also going to sit down and discuss her career in an interview with beloved British TV presenter Sir Bruce Forsyth.

However, the 69 year old's representative has confirmed the gigs have been axed following a dispute with the promoter.

A statement from the representative reads, "Due to current economics and unusually high ticket prices, the producer was unable to secure the promised funds.

"For months Liza has been preparing for these shows and she was devastated to hear of this unfortunate news. She has always thought of London a second home and will miss seeing her friends and devoted fans."
