Sad to say but Mariah Carey's weekend concert in Hong Kong was canceled Thursday Oct 26th because of poor ticket sales and what promoters said were the pop star's "unreasonable demands." Carey actually was slated to perform Saturday Oct 28th at an outdoor space in Hong Kong which will mark the last stop of her tour after performances in Japan this week.
In a statement posted on their Website Thursday morning, the concert promoters Concerts Asia said "As promoters of the Mariah Carey Hong Kong concert, we have decided to cancel the event effective immediately due to both the poor response of public ticket sales and also due to specific last-minute demands which we find wholly unreasonable and not with the best interests of Hong Kong, us and also the fans."
Did not elaborate on what Carey's demands were, Concerts Asia merely said it had only sold 4,000 tickets despite a "substantial" advertising campaign while declined to comment further on that matter.
