Kylie Cancels Shows

Kylie has had to cancel the German leg of her current tour. The pop star released a statement via her website. It says: “I am extremely disappointed that due to financial difficulties of the German promoter CT Creative Talent GmbH, I am unable to perform the scheduled shows in Cologne, Munich, Berlin and Hamburg. The administrator who is now controlling CT Creative Talent GmbH, is unable to confirm that we have the venues and facilities needed to be able to put on the shows. I have always had great support in Germany from a loyal and loving fan base and I can’t stress enough how difficult and disappointing it is to be ready to play the shows and to have been let down at the last minute.”

New Manager for Lily

Lily Allen has employed a new managing team. She is now under the managing talents of Scott Roger and Henry Village.

Fall Out Boy’s Baby Boy

Patrick Stump and his wife Elisa Yao have welcomed a baby boy this week. The couple have named their baby boy Declan. Congratulations.

LostAlone Announce Split

LostAlone have decided to part ways. The band issued the following statement:

“LostAlone will forever be documented by our three albums of which we are immensely proud, the memories of the incredible support you have shown us, and the unbelievable places around the world we’ve had the opportunity to travel together. This is not something that we wanted to happen, and not a decision we took lightly. But unfortunately for us, events have transpired that make it impossible right now for us to continue the band we love.

We never dreamed that we would ever have fans as committed, passionate and supportive as you guys, and we are extremely thankful to each and every one of you. We hope that this will continue as we take out first steps on our individual musical paths.

Hopefully we’ll see as many of you as possible at these final shows so we can say goodbye in person. It’s out sincerest hope that in our physical absence our music will be safe in your hands. Listen to it, share it, play it loud, sing it, cover it, own it, wear it and spread the word of LostAlone. Breathe in the future and exhale the past.”
