Christina Aguilera postpones summer tour
Christina Aguilera, who was set to tour in support of her highly anticipated new album "Bionic" alongside Leona Lewis, has pushed back the tour a year.
In a statement from Live Nation, Aguilera announced the summer tour has been moved to 2011 due to prior commitments she had to make for promoting the album, set to hit stores June 4 and her upcoming film debut, "Burlesque," which is slated for a November release and co-stars Cher.
"The singer felt she needed more time to rehearse the show and with less than a month between the album release and tour date this wasn’t possible," the statement read.New dates will be announced later this year.
Refunds for tickets to Aguilera’s Aug. 19 show at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine are available at point of purchase.
Aguilera is slated to perform at the MTV Movie Awards on June 6.
