The Scissor Sisters have apologised to fans after pulling the plug on an upcoming concert in Germany.

The pop stars were due to play in Berlin in October (12) as part of a European tour, but they have been forced to scrap the show.

A statement posted on their website reads: "We Scissor Sisters want to express our heartfelt apologies to our friends in Berlin. Due to an unforeseen conflict, we sadly need to cancel our show on October 12.

"It's always difficult to be the bearers of bad news, and it breaks our heart to disappoint anyone, especially our loyal fans in one of our favorite cities in the world. We can only say that we will make it up to you as soon as we can."

The Scissor Sisters are currently on the Japanese leg of their world tour.
