Fans looking forward to Peter Andre's UK tour will be saddened to hear that it has been postponed, due to the pop star's brother suffering a decline in this health.
Peter, 39, was due to perform the latest gig on his Up Close And Personal UK Tour at Cardiff's Motorpoint Arena on Friday night, but the singer has rushed to his eldest sibling's hospital bedside in London. Andrew, 54, has been battling kidney cancer for most of this year and is currently undergoing chemotherapy.
A statement from his management company on Twitter explains:
"It is with great regret that Peter Andre has postponed his remaining December 2012 tour dates, starting from Liverpool tomorrow, Sat Dec 8th.
"'His brother Andrew's health has taken a turn for the worse and Peter has made the decision to be with him and his family at this time.
"Fortunately it's been possible to reschedule the 5 remaining 2012 dates on the tour. See http://peterandre.com for details."
Pete himself has said: "One positive thing is that my brother Andrew has been feeling good at the moment.
"He's still having chemotherapy but, as usual, he's being so strong. I spent the day with him and Mike (another brother) at the Royal Marsden Hospital last Tuesday and it was great to all be together."
Andrew was diagnosed with cancer in February this year, soon flying to the UK from his home in Australia to be with his family throughout his treatment.Death Of Kate Middleton Pregnancy Nurse 'May End Hoax DJs' Careers'
