Pop babe Rachel Stevens may have been voted Britain's sexiest woman but her singing abilities haven't persuaded fans to attend her latest concert, which has been cancelled.

The ex-S CLUB singer and former UK reality TV star Darius Danesh were headlining the WATERFRONT ROCK event in Liverpool, England, next month (04SEP04), but the show has been cancelled due to poor ticket sales.

Only 500 of the 4,500 seats have been sold, however organisers are blaming the bizarre English summer which has been flitting between blazing sunshine and torrential rain in recent weeks.

An event spokesman says, "Erecting an arena and getting bums on seats when the heavens are opening is proving too difficult."

A gig insider adds, "The rain put people off, but that can't be the only reason. Perhaps the pop line-up was not that big a draw."
