ROBBIE WILLIAMS' GIG HERE CANCELLED

Pop star Robbie Williams' Oct 4 concert at the Singapore Indoor Stadium has been cancelled and fans can get refunds from Thursday to Aug 14, said concert promoter Midas Promotions.

It said the South-east Asian leg of the 41-year-old singer's current tour was axed "due to issues outside of the artist's control". September shows in Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Bangkok were also cut.

However, the Australian leg of the tour will continue as planned in October.
