MILEY Cyrus left legions of her young fans disappointed after cancelling a gig – just 30 minutes before show time.

The 21-year-old was struck down by flu before her gig in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The announcement was made on the singer’s website.

It read: “Miley Cyrus - CANCELED. Due to illness, Miley Cyrus' "Bangerz" tour date scheduled for tonight, April 7, at Time Warner Cable Arena Charlotte has been cancelled. Cyrus has been diagnosed with the flu and doctors have ordered her to rest.”

Fans expressed their anger at the short notice of the show’s cancellation.

19-year-old Molly Crunkleton told the Charlotte Observer: “I showed up, spent all my money on gas, got there and found out the show was cancelled. I'm very angry right now.”

While Karoline Jumper (16) said: “We were walking to the concert when my friend texted. On the signs, it said "refunds available," but where's the refund for my outfit that I bought, or for my nails or the gas or hotel?”

The singer was said to be distraught last week due to the sudden death of her pet dog.
