Gérard Depardieu, the French actor and entertainer, and Russian passport holder, has cancelled one of two concerts in Monaco during the last week of July.

In a communiqué from the Société des Bains de Mer, the reason for the cancellation on July 26 is a clash in his agenda. An appearance on the following day, July 27, will go ahead as planned.

Depardieu has been described as one of the most prolific character actors in film history, having been in 170 movies since 1967. He is particularly well known for his roles in Jean de Florette (1986) and Cyrano de Bergerac (1989).

Ticket holders are encouraged to contact their brokers to exchange their tickets or ask for a refund.
