Fans looking forward to seeing Carrie Underwood in the United Kingdom this weekend will have to wait a little longer, as the singer has canceled two planned appearances “due to illness.”
Underwood’s label announced via Facebook that the 35-year-old would not be performing at Long Road Festival, where she was scheduled to headline Saturday, nor at Radio 2 Live at Hyde Park Sunday.
“Carrie Underwood has been forced to cancel several upcoming promotional activities in the UK,” her record label posted on Facebook. “She looks forward to resuming promotion for her new album, Cry Pretty, soon.”
The expectant singer-songwriter, who announced her second pregnancy in August, was set to appear on stage Sunday alongside Kylie Minogue, Rita Ora, and Lenny Kravitz. As for Saturday’s Long Road Festival, fellow country singer Aaron Watson will now headline, replacing Underwood.
“We’re just as gutted as she and her fans are, and our primary concern is her speedy recovery,” Long Road Festival posted on their social media sites. “We can’t wait to come together as a Country Family to make The Long Road a festival to remember.”
