Parisians hoping to see Whitney Houston perform live in the City of Lights will have to take a rain check – Houston has canceled the show under the advisement of her physician, CNN has learned.
“Whitney is suffering from an upper respiratory infection and after a consultation with her doctors has been advised to postpone her performance,” Houston’s representative said in a statement.
“Whitney was excited to open her European tour in Paris and deeply regrets having been forced to postpone the show,” her rep added.
The show will continue on to Manchester, England, for an April 8 performance, but those hoping to catch Houston in Paris should hold on to their tickets – a new date will be announced shortly, the statement said.
