Singer Dionne Warwick is considering pulling two upcoming Japanese concerts – because she fears further tremors following last week’s earthquake disaster.
The Walk on By star admits she’s terrified of quakes – and moved out of Los Angeles when the last ‘big one’ hit the city.

She still hasn’t ruled out the upcoming shows in Tokyo – but she’s not looking forward to the trip.

She says, “We’re still waiting for word. The last we heard it was still no power, they’re still having aftershocks and I don’t do earthquakes very well… They ran me out of this town… I left here in a flash.

“Back east you kinda get a warning about hurricanes, you get a warning about tornadoes, so you know what to do.

“That last earthquake here, it threw me outta bed and when I got my bearings, I said, ‘OK, I’m outta here… Whatever’s here can stay.'”
