Emeli Sande’s Edinburgh Castle gig cancelled

Emeli Sande’s eagerly-anticipated gig at Edinburgh Castle has been cancelled.

The chart-topping Scottish singer was due to perform the massive outdoor concert in the Capital on Thursday, 13 July.

Sande, who recently played a sell-out gig at Edinburgh’s Usher Hall, had also been due to perform in Cork, in Ireland three days earlier on July 10, but that show has also been cancelled.

The bequiffed singer, who was raised in Aberdeenshire before going on to study medicine at the University of Glasgow, headlined a free concert at Edinburgh Castle to celebrate the visit of the London 2012 Olympic torch.

It is not clear at this point why Sande has cancelled her Edinburgh gig, but it is understood that anyone who bought tickets will be refunded.

It is the second blow for Sande’s fans in the Capital in the space of a few months.

According to reports, an estimated 200 ticket holders were refused entry to the singer’s gig at the Usher Hall in Edinburgh on March 16 after they unknowingly bought stolen tickets.

The devastated fans only realised they had bought fakes when they arrived at the Lothian Road venue and were turned away by security.

According to the Daily Record, the unlucky fans had bought tickets from secondary ticket websites after they had been stolen from the Usher Hall box office.
