Lily Allen Cancels American Dates
Tue, 17 Apr 2007 10:45:36
After a seemingly never-ending tour, British pop sensation Lily Allen needs a break. The singer has cancelled a series of U.S. dates and apologized for the cancellations on her MySpace page.
Here is the MySpace message, complete with spelling mistakes:
"Hey Guys ,
I'm writing to tell you that I have cancelled many of my May and June tour commitments in America . The reason for this, is because my mummy and daddy are very rich, and I have never been in a position where i have actually had to do any hard work before. I thought that being a popstar meant going out getting trashed with famous people and sleeping in all day. The fact that this is not true has come as a huge dissapiontment to me, and as a result I am throwing the towel in.
No but seriously, I have been on tour with this album for a year now, I have fulfilled every commitment up to this point. I am tired, but more than that I don't think I have been giving my best performances recently. I have been getting really drunk because I've been so nervous about doing bad shows, and I don't want people spending money on a going to see a show that isnt the best it could be . I am not falling apart at the seems, I am not suffering with exhaustion, I am not pregnant, and I am not going to rehab. I will be here in America, promoting the album and also starting to write the second album, which I am beyond excited about. The LA and New York shows will still be happening, and I am still playing Coachella and Bonaroo and all the other festivals."
These are the tour dates she is still committed to:
04/29 - Indio, CA (Coachella Festival)
05/13 - Seattle, WA
05/15 - Los Angeles, CA
06/01 - Charleston, SC
06/12 - New York, NY
06/15 - Manchester, TN (Bonnaroo Festival)
