Subject: Sick Tina Turner postpones UK concerts

From BBC News Online

Tina Turner has rescheduled shows in London and Sheffield because she is suffering from respiratory flu.

Doctors have advised the 69-year-old, performing in the UK for the first time since 2000, to rest for six days.

She had been due at the capital's O2 arena on Wednesday and the following night at the Sheffield Arena, but now both shows will take place in May.

A statement issued on behalf of Turner said she "regrets" the decision and the "inconvenience" to all her fans.

"Tina always wants to give one hundred percent and has been overwhelmed by the reaction from her UK fans at the gigs last week.

"She regrets this decision to postpone and the inconvenience to all those fans with tickets, but wants to make sure each concert she does is memorable for everyone"

Fans have been advised to keep their tickets, as they will be valid for the rescheduled dates. Refunds are available for those who are unable to attend the new dates.

The veteran singer, whose hits include Simply The Best and Steamy Windows, performed in the UK for two dates at Wembley Stadium during her "retirement" tour of 2000.

She performed her first UK show last week, as part of a comeback tour billed as a celebration of 50 years in the business.
