POPSTAR Ellie Goulding has pulled out of performing at the Open Air Theatre next month.

The Starry Eyed star was due to headline a gig at the venue on Saturday, June 11, but has pulled out blaming “unforeseen circumstances.”

A spokesman for Entourage Global, the company behind promoting the show, said: “We are all very disappointed that Ellie has had to cancel but totally accept the situation and support her decision.

“Substantial negotiations took place with Ellie’s agent and management in an attempt to reschedule the show, but unfortunately due to her significant commitments out of the country an alternate date was not available.

“We sincerely apologise to everyone who has supported the event and bought tickets.”

The company added it was currently locked in negotiations with another chart topping artist to appear at the theatre this summer.

The news is also a blow for fans of Scarborough’s X Factor singer Sophia Wardman who was due to support Miss Goulding with band Belle Amie.

Ticket refunds for the gig are available from www.ticketline.co.uk
