Dozens of angry Dame Julie Andrews fans who watched the musical icon's first London concert for decades have asked for their money back.

Her beautiful voice was famously damaged after throat surgery 14 years ago, and it had been feared she might never sing again, so fans were thrilled by the news of her return.

Many had been expecting the 74-year-old to sing all night at the O2 on Saturday, but in the end, she was only able to perform a few numbers, supported by other professional singers.

In January, Dame Julie told us: "I'm very worried that people think I'm making this huge comeback concert because my voice has been restored - that is not the case.

"I use a kind of sing-speaking technique, which is fun, and I don't think when people come to the Dome in May that they'll be disappointed."

But, it seems, that was not the case and many fans have asked for their tickets -which cost in the region of £60 to £100 - to be refunded.

I came all the way from Hungary and waited for 6 years to finally meet her and all I can say is… The concert was simply AMAZING!!!!! It worth every penny I spent. Singing with her Do-Re-Mi was a moment I will cherish forever, frankly those 3 minutes worth all the way to London and back... =) She looked absolutely stunning, frankly Julie is more and more beautiful as time goes by…=) She has grace, she has style, she is a real legend!!!
We sat on level 4, very high, but we had a great view to the stage and... we could see her backstage!!! The whole concert started with the Sound of Music "I know I will hear what I heard before.... and I will sing once more" then she came in...=) The second half was about Simeon's Gift, personally I do not like musicals too much, but this one was simply wonderful!!!
So I was absolutely HAPPY =) about the concert!!!!!... Julie you were absolutely amazing and we love you! =) =) =)
