Two Usher concerts in South Africa have been cancelled due to "unavoidable scheduling and logistical challenges".
The R&B singer was due to perform at both the Cape Town and Durban legs of the Hansa Festival of Legends tour in March (12).
But now the gigs have been scrapped, officials from organisers Big Concerts announced on Monday (23Jan12).
Usher will however still play at the Johannesburg leg of the festival.
Big Concerts' CEO John Langford says, "We never went on sale with the Cape Town and Durban tickets when we announced that Usher was coming to SA (South Africa). We tried hard to make Cape Town and Durban work, but due to logistics it didn't work."
