Ariana Grande has cancelled her forthcoming show in the UAE.

The 22-year-old was scheduled to play at the du Arena in Abu Dhabi on December 3, however the singer has been forced to abandon the tour date.

She announced that her The Honeymoon Tour will not go ahead as planned, but did not confirm exactly why she is unable to leave her home of the United States when she took to social media.

“Babies, I'm so sad I won't be able to make it abroad this December but I can't wait to see u & reschedule for next year.i love you so much,” she posted on Twitter, Tuesday morning.

However the former Nickelodeon actress was recently ill and received support in the form of fellow singer Megan Trainor.

“And I'm so proud of @ArianaGrande for having a fever and chills and staying strong and slaying that performance. Ur my hero,” the ‘All About That Bass’ hitmaker tweeted last month, to which Grande replied: “wow I love you ♡ thanks for snuggling me til the last seconds before we started and immediately after we finished.”

The star – who has 34 million followers on Twitter and 52 million on Instagram - was still able to perform at the American Music Awards recently and stayed active online, wishing her fans a happy Thanksgiving last week.

Her upcoming gig dates are scheduled to be London on December 5 and Japan December 8 and 9.

Organisers of her Yas Island concert, Flash Entertainment are trying to confirm a new date in 2016 for Grande’s gig to go ahead and those who had already bought tickets will automatically be signed up for the new gig.
