Back in March, Cee Lo Green was excited to announce a series of shows in Las Vegas, to start this August. That was before NBC decided that it wanted to expand The Voice to include a season in the fall, though. The “Forget You” singer said that the show has caused him to delay his Vegas shows until February.
Green first announced plans to do at least 28 shows as his “Loberace” alter ego at the Planet Hollywood resort starting on Aug. 29. Green announced the show as “part dance party, part live intimate concert” and is partly inspired by Liberace.
However, Green released a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday saying that the shows will have to be pushed back until early 2013.
“It's always been a dream of mine to be among the great music legends who have had a Las Vegas residency and I was very much looking forward to launching Loberace this year,” the statement reads. “But as we move into the third season of The Voice, with my dedicated commitment to the filming schedule and love for my role on the show, I will need to postpone the opening of Loberace to early 2013. Most importantly, to all my fans who have already purchased tickets, please accept my sincerest apology and I hope you can still join me in Vegas next year, so I can properly and finally introduce you to my brainchild.”
According to The Associated Press, those who have already purchased tickets can get a refund. The new shows will start on Feb. 27 and run through April. Tickets will go on sale on Aug. 1.
The third season of The Voice will start on Monday, Sept. 10. Green is a coach on the show, along with Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine.
