Whitney won’t dance
Whitney wants to dance with somebody – but only if she sells out a concert in a few days.
Promoters have cancelled the Whitney Houston show at New Plymouth’s Bowl of Brooklands and are taking legal action against the district council.
The R&B diva was scheduled to perform at the TSB Bowl of Brooklands on March 6, but yesterday cancelled, with her promoter Andrew McManus Presents blaming a dispute with the venue’s operator, the New Plymouth District Council.
Mr McManus said his company’s lawyers were currently drawing up legal papers against the council.
“At this point in time there will be no comment due to pending legal action. We are preparing our case and that is all I can say at this stage,” Mr McManus told the Taranaki Daily News.
New Plymouth Mayor Peter Tennent said the council has not yet been formally told by Mr McManus that the concert has been called off and had not heard about any legal action against it.
“Like everyone else, we heard via media release. We have had no direct notification from Andrew,” he said.
