British-Irish boyband One Direction have cancelled an upcoming show in Paraguay due to logistical difficulties.

The group had been booked to perform at the Jockey Club venue in Asuncion, Paraguay on 29 April (14) as part of a massive world tour, but the show has now been axed.

Fans have been offered refunds and local promoters have blamed the cancellation on "logistical complications". Rumours about a possible cancellation have been rife for several months.

One Direction's 2014 tour will include a jaunt around the U.K. and Europe as well as legs in North America and Australia.
