Liza Minnelli has cancelled a US concert after falling ill.

The mayor of Portland had expected to give the singer a key to the city of Maine after her performance at Merrill Auditorium on Wednesday night.

But the arts organisation Portland Ovations said Liza fell ill before her afternoon sound check and could not perform as scheduled. She then returned to New York.

The 64-year-old was expected to sing her greatest hits and material from new album Confessions to kick off Portland Ovations' 80th season.

The Portland Press Herald said the organisation was hoping to reschedule the concert.

Liza's representative Scott Gorenstein said the singer wasn't seriously ill and would resume performing in the next few days.
