Scots Little Mix fans have been left furious after the pop band cancelled their show in the north-east – just as they announced fresh gigs in Europe.
As reported in the Press and Journal, the four-piece were due to play Aberdeen’s new TECA venue on October 4 – but cancelled the concert due to “unforeseen logistical issues”.
Little Mix made no mention of the called-off gig on their official Twitter feed, but first thing on Friday morning they announced a series of new shows across Europe in September.

Their final show of September, in Antwerp, is taking place just days before they were due to take to the stage in Aberdeen.
A statement from Little Mix’s representatives reads: “Due to unforeseen logistical issues Little Mix have unfortunately had to cancel their Aberdeen show, scheduled for October 4, 2019.”
“The band are really disappointed to not be able to make the show.”
Louise Stewart, head of entertainment at TECA said: “We’re sure the Aberdeen fans will be disappointed Little Mix are no longer coming to the city this year, however we hope to welcome them to TECA in the future.
“It’s unfortunate the band won’t make it to Aberdeen this year, however with some great shows scheduled and more announcements coming soon, there’s lots happening at TECA.”
The newly-announced shows will take the band to Spain, Italy, Austria, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium.
Fans have been venting their anger on Twitter.

@LittleMix what's going on. Got email saying Aberdeen gig is cancelled with no reschedule and now your advertising Europe tour dates. My girls will be gutted when I tell them as they've been to all your tours. Not impressed and probably won't get a reply. ?
