Cee Lo Fans Will Have To See Him Later at Planet Hollywood

July 18, 2012 at 5:27 PM | by | ()

This ruined our day.

We've been geeked out about this for a year now ever since hearing about it on the TODAY show -- a Vegas residency by Cee Lo Green. Titled "Loberace" (and, we saw what they did there), it wasn't long before we learned the show was headed to Planet Hollywood.

You can imagine how we felt then when we checked up on Vegas headlines today and saw this:

Cee Lo’s ‘Loberace’ at Planet Hollywood postponed until 2013 (Las Vegas Sun)

It was enough to make us choose drinking over cocktailing. Possibly, with Cee Lo's new sake brand.

Cee Lo's show was supposed to make its Strip debut next month. But, Vegas reporter John Katsilometes says that's now become an "unspecified time in ’13." Katsilometes writes that two reasons are being given for the delay -- one, Cee Lo's obligations on NBC's The Voice and two, the show needed time to "assemble all of the fancy effects." (Apparently, more is needed than two Jubilee showgirls.)

The news is so new that no updates can be found on the Cee Lo Green ticket page on the Planet Hollywood website (which still exists) nor on Loberace.com. There hasn't even been a shout-out to fans on his Facebook page.

No information has been given, either, on how to get your money back if you already purchased tickets. We're going to assume that they'll be automatically refunded to you if you purchased via credit, or that you'll need to go back to the point of purchase if you used cash.
