Clarkson cancels due to lack of interest

It seems like Kelly Clarkson might have acted a little too soon sacking her management - she needs every fan she can get. Her US tour has just been canned as nobody really wanted to go. There's a statement:

"I can't tell you how much I've been looking forward to getting out there to perform for y'all... 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."

LiveNation, the promoters, have been a little bit more honest:
"Ticket sales have not been what we anticipated and we came to the realisation that we had bit off more than we could chew.

"In the end, we are in the Kelly Clarkson business and for that reason we believe that this decision will only benefit her and her fans in the long run."

Yes. Nobody wants to be stood in a nearly-empty room watching the death throes of a career, do they?
