Kelly Clarkson the winner of the first season of American Idol, has canceled her upcoming tour.
We understand how heartbroken you must be.
In a statement on her Web site, Clarkson said: "In the craziness of the music business, performing is what I look forward to doing the most, so it really is disappointing for me to have to tell you that I won't be coming out to tour this summer. The fact is that touring is just too much too soon."
The real reason for the cancellation of course, is that nobody gives a rats ass about her cookie-cutter, designed-by-committee, overly-produced music. Plain and simple: ticket sales for the upcoming concert tour were abysmal, so in order to save face (and money) the tour was canned.
LiveNation CEO Michael Rapino admitted the cancellation was due to lack of interest. ''Ticket sales have not been what we anticipated," he said, "and we came to the realization that we had bit off more than we could chew.''
Tour's promoter Another Planet Entertainment's CEO Gregg Perloff, said,''The day when she will play in sold-out arenas is, no doubt, coming, but for now her fans should look forward to seeing her in a more intimate concert environment.''
Like perhaps open mic night at the corner coffee shop.
