Emma Bunton’s Christmas show at York Barbican called off on doctor’s advice

Emma Bunton: Christmas concert could not go ahead

THE Emma Bunton Christmas Show at York Barbican last night was called off at 90 minutes’ notice to ticket holders.

The Spice Girls singer had attended a Meet and Greet earlier but subsequently the 8pm concert could not proceed on doctor’s advice.

A statement from York Barbican said: “Please accept our sincere apologies, The Emma Bunton Christmas Show cannot go ahead tonight. Emma has been advised by her doctor that she is unable to perform. Emma is personally devastated and hopes very much to see you again another time.” Further information was sent to around 800 ticket holders. 

Emma, 46, was to have spiced up her Christmas party with solo career hits, Spice Girls staples and festive favourites. Her “secret” special guest last night would have been Will Young, by the way.

The cancelled concert will not be rearranged. Ticket holders will be refunded.
