Los Angeles - Singer Miley Cyrus cancelled her Tuesday show in Kansas City, Missouri, after being admitted to hospital for a “severe allergic reaction to antibiotics”, the show venue said.

The singer posted a picture of herself in a hospital bed on Twitter with an apology to her Kansas fans, saying: “I wanted so badly 2 b there 2night.” The venue said ticket holders will be refunded.
