Ill-health has forced the cancellation of the March 11th concert by Canadian identical twin singer/songwriters Tegan and Sara. The lesbian pair had been booked to play Auckland's Bruce Mason Centre but it has emerged that Tegan became ill at the end of a European tour and has lost her voice. " I still have not recovered my voice or received a clean bill of health. At the recommendation of my GP, I have decided to postpone our Australian/New Zealand tour to continue my recovery and ensure I don't do longer-term damage to my singing voice and health," she says in a statement released today. "I can count on one hand the number of shows we've had to cancel," she says. "I send our deep apologies to our fans, our team in Australia and New Zealand, as well as our promoters. To fans who have made travel plans and those who will be disappointed to hear this news, please know that we will be missing you all this coming week and promise to make it up to you soon." Thew show's promoters say all tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.
