On the heels of her parting ways with her manager Jeff Kwatinetz of The Firm, Kelly Clarkson is canceling her forthcoming summer tour, reportedly due to disappointing ticket sales. Is it the beginning of the end of her singing career already? We'll soon find out.
Explaining on the canceled show, which is embarked in support of her highly anticipated album "My December" slated to hit stores on June 26th, the American Idol winner released a statement on her Website, saying "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."
However, the songbird promises "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" and "thanks for all of your love and continued support."
Kelly's representative, Paul Freundlich, does confirm slow ticket sales has forced them to, unfortunately, cancel the tour, stating the singer and her team would be "reevaluating her show's size and scope," before moving forward with any touring plans.
