Sorry, Charlotte. Miley Cyrus was forced to cancel her scheduled concert in North Carolina's largest city on Monday night after coming down with a virus.

"Cyrus has been diagnosed with the flu and doctors have ordered her to rest," Live Nation said in a press release. A notice was posted at Time Warner Cable Arena a half-hour before for the show was set to start. It said refunds would be available but that the "Bangerz" tour stop would not be rescheduled.

Early Monday, Cyrus laid the groundwork for the cancellation by saying she was in "excruciating pain" on Twitter, though she has not commented further. The news comes less than a week after Cyrus' dog was killed by a coyote.

The singer's young fans were understandably upset by the news. One 16-year-old fan told the Charlotte Observer that she invested a lot of money to be there. "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?"

Live Nation said Cyrus' concert at Raleigh's PNC Arena on Tuesday will go on as planned.
