Lily Allen was forced to pull out of her performance at a Spanish music festival because she was too ill to fly to the event.
The Smile singer was due to appear at Benicassim festival at the weekend (17-19Jul09), but doctors told her she was too ill to get on a plane and perform after coming down with a bout of gastroenteritis.
A representative for Allen, who was replaced by rockers Maximo Park at the event, wrote on her MySpace.com blog: "She is very sorry to let fans down and hopes to be back to full strength as soon as possible."
The star took to her Twitter.com page to later express her regret at missing the festival, writing, "Wish I was at Benicassim, got a bug and been vomiting all day. Thank you to the lady who gave me a bag to vomit in at Gatwick (airport) this morning."
The singer wasn't the only act to pull out of the four-day festival - the Kings of Leon also disappointed fans when they cancelled their slot due to bad weather on Friday (17Jul09).
