British pop singer Robbie Williams has cancelled his upcoming Singapore concert, which was due to be held on Oct 4.

Local concert promoter Midas Promotions released a press statement on Monday saying that "the South East Asia leg of the Robbie Williams Let Me Entertain You tour has been cancelled due to issues outside of the artist's control". It declines to reveal what the issues are.

Besides Singapore, concert dates in September were also axed in Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Bangkok.

However, the Australian leg of the tour is unaffected and will go on as planned in October.

Those who have purchased tickets for the concert can get a full refund from July 16 to Aug 14.

Those who bought tickets through their credit cards will have the amount automatically credited to the same accounts. They do not need to return the physical ticket.

Customers who purchased tickets by cash or NETS are required to present their NRIC or passport at the Singapore Indoor Stadium box office for a cash refund.
