The last entry on her official blog here is over 2 months old.

I haven't heard anything about a refund but notice it's now not in the listings.
On checking, the tickets didn't seem to be selling particularly well - although the new season programme doesn't come out until the end of the month.

See Tickets (usual booking agency of ALW, whose production this tour is [or was?])
has only 1 venue listed, & even that says "event cancelled".
Ticketmaster seems to have 3 separate listings pages for the tour,
though for almost all the venues listed it says Cancelled:
only Bristol & Oxford don't say Cancelled,
though clicking through for Bristol Ticketmaster says currently not available online;
leaving just Oxford seemingly bookable (it did offer me a ticket for Oxford).
Maybe Connie's been offered a good role in something which clashes?

Connie Fisher's Tour HAS been called off, according to the extra paragraph at the foot of that WoS Bernstein article:

That blog ends by saying:

There are only so many alternatives. One of those is that ticket sales have just been too dreadful, but I can't say that I think that that is very likely. I haven't tried to buy any, so have no idea re what availability was still being offered. But surely, if advance sales were so bad, special offers and discounts would have been visible, and to my knowledge they haven't been. And the fact that both the tour and the Bernstein concert have been cancelled at the same time, has to be significant. It has to be some other factor that has actively stopped both!
And I don't think there is any doubt that Connie is a huge favourite of ALW. Would she risk that advantage by pulling out of the RUG produced tour, unless it was at RUG's instigation for RUG purposes? The other proper big ALW birthday concerts that he talked about on his blog, but re which nothing has since been heard? Whatever, I think it has to be something to do with RUG. Still it is odd that there hasn't been explanation.
