The singer's management, Handprint Entertainment, gave a straightforward explanation for the cancellation. They say the promoters, One Events, have outstanding production and artist fees to pay.
"Due to a financial default by the promoter, it is with great sadness that Mariah will not be able to perform for her fans in Hong Kong," Handprint's BENNY MEDINA said in a statement to the AFP.
"We gave them time to pay but he kept missing the new deadlines," he told the news agency from his L.A. office.
I guess those were the "OUTRAGEOUS DEMANDS" the promoter didn't want to pay up. I have a love/hate relationship w/ Ms. Carey. However, no promoter would cancel a show two days before due to low ticket sales. And, it just sounds unbelievable considering she actually sold out shows in China for the Pearlnecklace tour.
