Kristin Chenoweth's UK tour canceled


Singer/actress Kristin Chenoweth has been left "devastated" after her entire U.K. tour was canceled just three days before she was due to perform in London.

Find: Was Chenoweth flirting with Hugh Jackman?

A spokesperson for the Broadway star announced the last minute news late on Friday, blaming gig promoters for the unexpected cancellation.

The statement reads: "We regret to announce that we are unable to present our planned U.K. tour with Tony and Emmy Award-winning star Kristin Chenoweth and that the tour has therefore been canceled. We are deeply sorry to disappoint Kristin's many U.K. fans, who so readily brought tickets to see her. We wish to make it clear that the decision to cancel the tour is a result of Speckulation Entertainment's unforeseen circumstances, and that Kristin is saddened not to be able to perform here as planned. She was looking forward to performing to her sold-out audiences."

Chenoweth subsequently reached out to fans on Twitter to express her shock at the news, saying she was all packed and ready to fly out of the U.S. for her first show in London on Monday.

Alongside a photo of her packed suitcase, Chenoweth wrote, "Was ready to go. And now completely devastated. I am Sorry to my uk (sic) fans. Not a good day. A horrible day. "UK. Trust me, this isnt (sic) about snow... Trust me nobody is more heartbroken than I. Devastated."

Regardless of what her spokesperson says (what do you think they're going to say?) this was due to low ticket sales.  End of story.

Yippee, that woman's voice is like nails on a chalkboard.  She is sooooo irritating.  How did she be come a star?  Really....she strains her voice to sing and over acts everything.  The cutsie look is also not flattering.  She is not aging gracefully.
