Poor sales mean 'Voice' tour is off
Tuesday 19 June 2012
The Voice tour has been cancelled after poor ticket sales.
The 11-date tour, which was to have featured performances from the BBC1 talent show's eight finalists, included concerts in Cardiff, Glasgow and Manchester.
A spokeswoman for the tour said: "Unfortunately, The Voice UK Live has been cancelled due to lack of ticket sales – customers are advised to contact their point of purchase for ticket refunds."
Other planned venues for the tour included Brighton, Aberdeen and Sheffield.
It is another blow for the show which saw a spectacular drop in viewers after its early stages. The winner, Leanne Mitchell, landed a deal with music giant Universal, but a download version of her debut single failed to make much of an impression on the charts.
