Fatboy Slim has held several concerts in his home city
DJ Fatboy Slim has cancelled a beach concert planned for his home city of Brighton in September.
Big Beach Boutique 5 was due to take place in Madeira Drive on the weekend of 4 and 5 September following a sell-out event for 20,000 people last year.
Fatboy, aka Norman Cook, has been battling an alcohol addiction and spent time in rehab earlier this year.
Brighton and Hove City Council confirmed the planned dates were off and said it was a disappointment.
Tickets for last September's Beach Boutique 4 were put on sale to residents of the Brighton area only.
People without tickets were urged not to come to the event, following an inaugural gig on the city's beach in July 2002 when 250,000 people turned up instead of the anticipated 60,000.
Cook lives in Hove with his radio presenter wife Zoe Ball and their son Woody.
He released an album earlier this year under the Brighton Port Authority name.
Councillor David Smith, Brighton and Hove cabinet member for culture and tourism, said he was disappointed Beach Party 5 had been cancelled because of the number of people it brought to the city.
