    Kelly Clarkson tour shut down

    Let's hope this is a trend.

    While The Police and Genesis conquer North America.......

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Pop singer and "American Idol" winner Kelly Clarkson may want to consider singing the blues with all the turmoil in her life lately.

    After feuding with her label for months over artistic control of her upcoming album, "My December," and abruptly firing her long-time manager this week, the singer pulled the plug on a summer concert tour on Thursday due to poor ticket sales.

    "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," Clarkson said on her Web site (www.kellyclarkson.com).

    "The fact is that touring is just too much, too soon," said Clarkson, 25, who has sold an estimated 11 million records worldwide.

    Clarkson promised fans she'd "get back out there as soon as is humanly possible."

    Michael Rapino, chief executive officer of concert promotion company LiveNation, said, "Ticket sales have not been what we anticipated and we came to the realization that we had bit off more than we could chew."

    The singer has been embroiled in a high-profile dispute with Sony BMG boss Clive Davis, credited with cultivating stars like Whitney Houston, over her new album, "My December." Clarkson recently told "Elle" magazine that she rejected Davis' offer of $10 million to remove five songs from the album.

    "My December," originally due out in April was delayed due to the falling out. It is set to be released on June 26.

    The new album's first single, "Never Again," her seventh top-10 hit, fell six places to No. 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart Thursday.

    Clarkson's debut album, "Thankful" (2003) sold 2.6 million units in the United States, while her follow-up "Breakaway" (2004) sold about 5.8 million units, according to Nielsen Soundscan.

    Those shows were scheduled for arenas.

    Gonna try for smaller venues later.

    That's her people telling her she can sell arenas.

    I have two teenage girls.

    We will go see her when/if she comes this way.

    I like her.

    I like her.
    i am a fan as well. i would go check her out if she went to the house of blues or something.

    something just isn't right with that story. the girl sold 5-6 mill of her last album and did a ampitheater tour last time out and it sold well. what happened? it cannot be soley based on her first single? hell her album wont be out for another week or 2, so it can't be due to lack of sales. i think the record company might be hosing her here.
    damn shame. the girl actually has talent.

    agreed......
    however artist integrity. you gotta give her credit for holding her ground. i have a copy of it and it is nothing like her last album. very dark. not a whole lot of hits on it.
    she does care if it tanks, she got it out of her system and will be able to another pop disc if she choses. this one disc wont kill her career.

    Why do bad things happen to good people?!

    I'm sure this is retribution for her not following Clive Davis' advice.
