Ashlee Simpson, who recently married Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz and has officially confirmed she’s pregnant, has canceled her upcoming 12-date tour, scheduled for June 9-July 1.
No information was given about ticket refunds, but it is also unknown how many tickets, if any, were sold. On her website, Simpson posted the following note on her tour cancellation:
“Dear friends, fans, lurkers, stalkers and sh**talkers!,” her post began, “I’m really sorry to announce that I’m going to postpone my tour this summer.
My team gave me a few reasons I could use:
1. jury duty (but you can get out of jury duty once)
2. creative differences (but I’m a solo artist so that didn’t make sense)
3. not in the mood/have a headache (wait, that was an excuse for Pete! and it didn’t work. See next reason)
4. the baby
…and that’s where I drew the line.
The truth is I want to put on an amazing show for you the next time I come to your town. I promise I will be back, better than ever and ready to rock out. Until then.
