Ill Rita Ora cancels Haydock gig

 TONIGHT'S Rita Ora gig at Haydock Park Races has been cancelled due to the "ill health of the artist".

No more clues have been given into the nature of the illness at this time, and promoters at Haydock told Confidential this morning that they were also in the dark after the 11th hour announcement from the singer's camp.

Ora's management only said: "Rita loves nothing more than performing live so is devastated that her doctors have insisted on her not performing this weekend. She hopes to see you all soon". 

In a statement, Haydock added "Whinnie Williams’ performance has therefore also been cancelled and she too will not be performing".

It added that the evening's racing will still go ahead and around 8,000 fans who paid more than £30 a ticket can expect a £12 refund to cover the loss of the music element of the evening.

John Baker, Regional Director North West for The Jockey Club said "We were extremely excited about Rita Ora performing at Haydock Park Racecourse.

"We hope that tonight's racegoers come along and enjoy the rest of their evening at Haydock Park."

He added. "We wish Rita a speedy recovery and hope to welcome her back to the North West in the near future." 

Haydock said: "All customers who have pre-booked full price tickets will be issued with an automatic refund of £12 directly into their bank accounts. Customers who have paid by cash and require a refund are requested to visit the Haydock Park Sales Office located at the racecourse. The refund amount is to compensate for the live music performance element of the evening not taking place."
