The newlywed singer was due to perform in Dubai Festival City resort next Thursday (15.05.08) but has now pulled out of the show.

She last performed in the Middle East country in 2004, after a rumoured concert in 2003 failed to take place.

Glamorous singer Fergie was due to perform in the resort the following day (16.05.08) as part of the Divas in Dubai event, but her concert has also been postponed.

A spokesperson for the event said: “Mariah and Fergie are disappointed that they won’t be able to perform. They had scheduled this one special event in their calendars and were looking forward to performing for the Dubai fans.”

A statement issued by promoters said the event was cancelled due to “the extremely compressed time frame along with unforeseen logistical complications.”

Mariah has recently returned from honeymoon in Barbados with new husband Nick Cannon. The concert was scheduled to be her first performance since getting married last week.
