Whitney Houston has cancelled her Perth concerts, and her promoter has blamed AC/DC and George Michael.
Andrew McManus today confirmed that "difficulties in securing rock n roll air ride trucks to transport the touring sound and lighting equipment to Perth" was the reason why the diva's concerts, scheduled for March 6 and 7 at Members Equity Bank Stadium, have been called off.
"The shortage of air ride trucks has come about by the AC/DC and George Michael tours taking up 95 per cent of those available," the release said. Howvever the rest of the soul-pop diva's Australian tour is going ahead as planned.
Houston's 'Nothing But Love' tour will take her all over the world, and this trip will be the first time she has performed in Australia since her 'Moment of Truth tour' in 1988.
The diva, who has made a remarkable career comeback, is the only artist to have accrued seven consecutive multi-platinum albums, with The Bodyguard soundtrack, featuring hits I Have Nothing and I Will Always Love You, one of the top 10 selling albums of all time.
Her rendition of Dolly Parton's hit is still the biggest US single of all time.
She had been set to perform all of her greatest hits.
