Rapper 50 CENT has run into trouble on his first ever Australian tour - he was booed by fans last Friday night (05DEC03) in Melbourne after losing his voice.

The IN DA CLUB hitmaker arrived onstage at the MELBOURNE PARK STADIUM after support act Obie Trice wowed the crowd with an energetic set, but struggled to hold his faltering voice.

After leaving the stage twice to try and regain his vocals, 50 returned and was heavily assisted by his backing group G-Unit as he struggled to complete the show - and while some fans were understanding, others chanted, "Bull****, bull****," at him.

And 50's run of bad luck continued when he performed in Sydney the following night (06DEC03) where he was accused of miming by the disgruntled audience and slammed for plugging his range of clothes alongside his music - and was booed off.
