Kelly Clarkson Cancels Summer Tour
[Sob, sob, sob]
The original American Idol champ Kelly Clarkson just announced via her official website that she’s canceling her summer tour!!!!!!!
“I can’t tell you how much I’ve been looking forward to getting out there to perform for y’all. 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.
But I promise you that we’re going to get back out there as soon as is humanly possible to give you a show that will be even better.
Thanks for all of your love and continued support.
Noooooooooo!!!!! What do I do with my tickets?????
This follows her ongoing battles with her record company and management over artistic control of her music. She recently fired her longterm manager Jeff Kwatinetz of The Firm.
From her former management: “Kelly Clarkson is an enormously talented artist and we are pleased to have served as her managers in her well-deserved rise to stardom. We have only the best wishes and hopes for her in the future.”
Kelly‘s album is still due out in stores June 26, 2007. Er, we hope.
