It's a bad day for gig cancellations - following The Saw Doctors' postponement of their gigs at the Olympia Theatre, American singer Melanie Martinez has cancelled her own gig at the same venue.

The Voice US star was set to play the Olympia next Monday, November 28th, but has cancelled dates in Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Glasgow and Dublin due to ill health, following her London gig last night.

A statement read: "Melanie gave it her all in London last night, but following medical advice, she cannot continue with her tour dates.

Melanie promises to return to the UK & Ireland next year with new dates and new music.
