Rufus Wainwright scrapped a concert in Rome, Italy on Thursday night (03Jul14) after his flight was cancelled.

The Canadian singer was due to perform at the Auditorium Parco della Musica in the city but travel issues prompted him to postpone the show at the last minute.

Wainwright's manager Mark Adelman claims the singer's plane had been affected by "technical problems".

It's the latest show Wainwright has axed - his upcoming concert in Moscow, Russia on 10 July (14) had to be cancelled after floods hit the Moscow International Performing Arts Centre.
