I feel now that Im losing my point again, so I wont say anymore, but just remember to take pleasure in someones failure makes us all bad. Theres enough ill will and really horrible people out there, maybe we should direct our anger at the right channels.
Totally agree with your sentiments there mrClaypole........I may not like Ali very much these days but I certainly wouldn't wish anything bad on him. I just made my choice not to support him anymore and thats where it ends for me

according to his own website, the gigs have been cancelled because 4 gigs wasn't enough to justify the expense of travelling there. That's why it has been re-scheduled to a later date when there will be MORE shows added.

that was the official reason given.

so it was THEIR decision to cancel.

Presumably,IF ENOUGH TICKETS HAD BEEN SOLD,the expense would have been justified.
