Christina Aguilera Cancels Summer Tour
Well, kind of.
It seems a little strange that Christina Aguilera would postpone her North American tour so soon before it was supposed to kick off. The official statement from XTina’s reps is that she is postponing her tour until summer of 2011 because she is busy with her new album and films.
The thing is…weren’t all of those things scheduled way in advance? Her album Bionic is due out June 8, and the tour was supposed to have begun less than a month later. That sounds, to me, like perfect timing, doesn’t it? Don’t artists usually use a tour as a way to promote their new albums?
Word on the street (and by “street” I mean the internets) is that Miss Aguilera was unable to sell out any of her shows. She was supposed to perform twenty shows– starting in Uncasville, Connecticut and ending in Los Angeles, California–but now because she is too “busy,” the tentative plans are for her to make up these performances next year, potentially in summer of 2011. If she were too busy, wouldn’t she have just postponed the tour a few months so that the album would still be fresh? At this rate, her album will be over a year old before she even begins to put on live performances (on tour) of it.
It seems a little strange to me, but hey, that’s okay, right? It’ll just build up the anticipation! And with all the extra time, we can expect a lot more from Miss Aguilera–or, at least, that’s how I’m guessing her fans will see it! Bring it in 2001, girl!
