Whitney Houston’s publicist has announced the diva’s plans to indefinitely delay her Back from the Tub Tour. Promoted to start next week at a sold out Betty Ford Clinic with future dates at Promises in Malibu and Meadows Treatment Center in Arizona, the tour is taking a backseat to awaited toxicology reports that take several days to be conclusive, but weeks to report.Houston passed away Saturday night due to unknown and well-speculated shady circumstances, but then hours later announced plans to embark on a worldwide zombie concert tour.
This is not the first time Ms. Houston has had to cancel a tour due to her drug related problems, with the last time being in 2010 on her Nothing Butt Love Tour. Poor sales and crack chain-smoking led her promoter at the time to comment, “It is what it is. She’s comfortable with the show she’s performing. She knows she’s not hitting every note like she used to. But it’s value for money; it’s Whitney Houston warts and all.”
Ticket Soul Master, Living Dead Nation and other promoters have issued full refunds to the throngs of living fans. Her current publicist insisted, “This is not the first timeHouston’s had a problem, but hopefully it will be the last.” She went on to say, “We know this is rigor mortis for the fans, but it’s hard on all of us.” As of press time there were no plans for a Purga Tour-ing.
