The 'R.I.P.' singer has had to postpone a concert due to the huge storm hitting the east coast of the US.

Rita Ora has apologised to fans after having to cancel her concert in New York City this week because of Hurricane Sandy.

The 'R.I.P.' singer tweeted fans on Monday to say she would still perform so long as people wanted to come and see her on stage at the city's Highline Ballroom venue, and promised to give them a "good show" if the concert went ahead as planned.

"My show is still on as of now but I will find out for definite tomorrow," Rita posted this week (29th October). "I'm fighting for it to go on! If you can make it then I can perform!

"F**k I hate STORMS! Why on our day?," she later wrote. "I don't want to risk any of my fans being hurt but if you guys still want a show I will give you a show. A good one too!"

However as the storm hit the east coast of the US on Monday evening Rita was forced to postpone the concert with an announcement yesterday morning (30th October).

"NOOOOOOOOOO!!! Tonight's show in NYC has had to be postponed," Rita tweeted. "Sandy may have won today but us #RitaBots will conquer the future."
