AceShowbiz - Comedian Russell Brand scrapped a show in Scotland on Thursday night, April 26 due to a "personal emergency". Katy Perry's ex-husband was booked to perform at His Majesty's Theatre in Aberdeen, but his promoter axed the gig hours before he was set to hit the stage.
"Due to a personal emergency Russell's promoters regrettably announce the postponement of Russell's tour date at His Majesty's Theatre in Aberdeen tonight," a statement from the venue bosses reads. "Please keep hold of your tickets. Ticket holders will be contacted about the rescheduling of the show very soon".
No further details were given, but the "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" star revealed his mom Barbara was battling cancer for the sixth time last year. He told Megyn Kelly, "She's got cancer again right now; she's having chemotherapy at the moment. She's had cancer six times, but the woman is very resilient. She likes it here on this planet, clearly".
She previously also fought and won her fights against uterine cancer and breast cancer.
