CLEVELAND (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The House of Blues has cancelled two of aspiring rapper Kevin Federline's concerts.
A November 9 show at HOB Cleveland and another on November 10 at the Club Harlem ballroom at HOB Atlantic City have both been cancelled without explanation. Neither concert is slated to be rescheduled at this time.
Additionally, the New York Post's Page Six is reporting that unnamed sources at Webster Hall are intimating that ticket sales for a Federline's November 4 appearance have been less than stellar which may lead to that show being shelved as well.
The 28 year-old rapper, formerly one of Britney Spears' backup dancer, came to the public attention after marrying the pop star. His efforts at using his newfound celebrity to reinvent himself as a rapper have been met with considerable criticism. His performance as the final act at the Teen Choice Awards 2006 was widely panned. His first single, PapaZao, released on January 1st 2006, was described by Entertainment Weekly as "worse than expected" while Billboard Magazine noted that the song was "a monument to mediocrity."
On the plus side for Federline fans, his new album, 'Playing with Fire', is due in stores on October 31 and has received some positive early reviews from the media. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
