According to the following press release, Ne-Yo has been dropped from the Double Up Tour after only 2 shows over a reported unsigned contract...
Yesterday, Shaffer Smith aka Ne-Yo was informed that he was being dropped from the rest of the R Kelly tour after delivering two sensational performances. Entertainment reporters, music critics, bloggers, fans, and concert goers all agreed that Ne-Yo's performances brought the heat; but maybe it brought too much heat.
"I don't understand their actions because I was rehearsing, doing media, promoting the tour, and performing, said Ne-Yo. In my opinion, I was doing everything possible to make the tour a success. I love being on stage in front of fans because of the immediate feedback you get. You know right away if they are feeling you; and they were really feeling our show."
Ne-Yo expressed genuine concern regarding not having the opportunity to complete the tour. He wanted all of his fans and supporters to be able to see him live. "To my fans and ticket holders – I apologize if you are disappointed."
Hmmm...reviews so far have given Ne-Yo's show two-thumbs up, despite Keyshia's rumored diva demands and Kells technical difficulties...Could Ne-Yo be hotter than R. Kelly? Ionno 'bout allat! But something is clearly suspect with this one.
