Feeling tired, Susan Boyle pulls out of 4th concert

From BBC News. Susan Boyle was released from a mental health clinic June 5.

Susan Boyle (pictured) has pulled out of a fourth concert on the Britain's Got Talent UK tour because she "needs to rest".

The Scottish singer was "really disappointed" not to be performing on June 19 at Cardiff International Arena.

Boyle, 48, has cancelled three other performances, nine dates into the tour. Britain's Got Talent stars are due to perform 25 times during the show's run.
The singer's publicist said decisions on whether Boyle performed were taken on a day-by-day basis.

Her spokeswoman said Boyle, from West Lothian was "sorry to all her fans".

"She would love to be able to perform every single evening but she is aware of what she can and can't do.

"I feel sorry for her because she doesn't want to let people down but also she needs to have a rest."

Boyle has also cancelled two performances at the Manchester MEN Arena June 14 and one in Liverpool on June 18.

She received standing ovations for her performances in Edinburgh and Glasgow but her publicist warned she would need further rest breaks.

However she insisted Boyle was not being axed from the tour.

The singer was treated for exhaustion at The Priory in London after coming runner up on the ITV1 show.

It is not known whether she will rejoin the 20-venue tour in Nottingham on June 20.
