Sugababes - had been due to star on second day of Rock 4 Life.
THE second day of Highland festival Rock 4 Life – featuring Sugababes and McFly – has been cancelled.
Festival organisers Caledonian Productions have confirmed the May 2 line-up for what was to have been a two-day festival has been dropped because of poor ticket sales.
Ticket outlets had been advised in the middle of last week to stop selling Sunday tickets.
Tobias Leask, one of the organisers, said just 420 out of a potential 10,000 tickets had been sold for the Sunday, leaving them with no choice but to cancel the second day.
The festival at the former McDermott's oil yard at Whiteness, near Ardersier, is in aid of the Highland Hospice.
Lined up to top the bill on the Saturday are veteran rockers Status Quo. Other acts include Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel and ex-Runrig frontman Donnie Munro.
