Well ALW obviously did not do that.No press promotion in the weekend tabloid press where you would usually see concert promotions.He has misjudged it this time.Other high profile stars advertise so they obviously feel there is a need to do that.The audiences going to West End shows have changed and they are not reading broadsheets(thats if any promotions were done in them)

Why should the promoters be to blame?
I have actually seen a few adverts for this tour but like a previous poster was not interested. It could be that some people would have bought tickets if they had known there was a tour booked, but 'some' people isn't enough to fill a venue.
TV viewers may have voted for her as the best Maria and flocked to see The Sound of Music but that doesn't mean that they had any particular interest in Connie herself.

No, that's the official spin.
The Daily Mail Reports
Connie Fisher concerts axed due to poor ticket sales. At the 4,500-seater Cardiff International Arena just 200 tickets were sold in one month. "They just weren't selling very well. I'm refunding the tickets as I speak," a box office person told me.
The Daily Express
IN the notoriously bitchy world of theatre, it’s not unheard of for one performer to take delight in another’s misfortune – and stars who rise faster than the rest make for obvious targets. Regardless of the official line, rumours are rife that poor ticket sales put paid to them both.
All the major newspapers including the Red Tops have reported it as poor ticket sales

Can you imagine if this was true? Connie's publicity machine has just announced that 'sorry . . . but Connie has something else better to do instead of coming to sing for you as promised.' Particularly when this tour was organised so far in advance that 'having a clash of commitments' is a joke.
Connie, good luck in the future, stop listening to RUG and get yourself out into the traditional casting process as soon as possible. I am looking forward to seeing you on TV in the 'Elvis' thing and I am sorry your concert was cancelled because of poor ticket sales. But better to face reality now, then be strung along any longer by ALW.
