John Legend axes South African festival gig

John Legend has apologised to fans in South Africa after he was forced to pull out of a weekend (14-16Oct11) music festival due to issues with the production company.

The Green Light hitmaker was scheduled to perform at the third annual Sixties Festival in Mbombela on Saturday (15Oct11), but on Thursday (13Oct11) he announced that he would no longer be part of the line-up at the three-day event.

In a series of Twitter.com posts, Legend writes, "I'm very sad to relay the news that my show in S Africa has been rescheduled...

"Just know that I am very disappointed as well. My flights were booked, my schedule was cleared. I was ready to do the show. Issues with the promoters/production company made it impossible so we'll reschedule and announce the date shortly."
