Kelly Clarkson has been forced to cancel her upcoming Dublin date at the 3Arena and the remainder of her tour due to vocal strain. 

A post on Clarkson's Facebook page said: "Regretfully, due to instruction of her doctor, Kelly must remain on vocal rest for the remainder of the year resulting in the cancellation of her scheduled tour date in Ireland. All tickets will be refunded at the original point of purchase." 

Clarkson said herself, "I am truly sorry that I have to cancel the remainder of my tour dates. I was so looking forward to sharing this tour with all my amazing fans in Canada and the UK. Unfortunately my doctor is telling me I have to stay on vocal rest, but I am working hard to get better as soon as possible."

Clarkson, who rose to fame after winning American Idol and who has had hits with Since U Been Gone, Because of You, and Breakaway, was due to play Dublin on November 10.

The news follows her cancellation of tour dates in the US two weeks ago.
