Mariah Carey cancels Brussels gig

Mariah Carey has cancelled her concert in Brussels after the city was attacked by terrorists on Tuesday.

The 'Without You' hitmaker was due to perform for fans in the Belgium capital on Sunday (27.03.16) as part of her Sweet Sweet Fantasy world tour but has now called it off following the devastating attacks, which killed 31 people.

Writing on Twitter, she said: "I love my fans in Brussels and at this time I am being advised to cancel my show for the safety of my fans, my band, crew and everyone involved with the tour. I hope to see you soon and send my prayers and eternal love, laughter and light to my Lambs."

The news comes only days after The Who's Roger Daltrey urged fellow musicians to keep touring despite the terrible attacks.

When asked if he thought artists should cancel their tours because of the disaster, he said: "We have to carry on, we have to carry on. We can't stop and give in to them.

"We have to go on with our lives. We can't let this stop [us], otherwise it's won. Terrorism's won and we can't let that happen. Full stop. Keep calm and carry on. That's the British way."
