Pollstar: Quick! Someone Tell Sony Music About Houstonís Concert Tour
Whitney Houston may be the comeback story of the year. The singerís new CD Ė "I Look To You" Ė quickly gathered critical nods and chalked up great sales upon its August release. Now U.K. and Euro dates are emerging for 2010.
But you wonít find any mention of the tour on WhitneyHouston.com, the Sony Music-run Web site thatís Ms. Houstonís official Internet turf.
But when it comes to labels and Houston, things can get a little confusing. Sony Music subsidiary Arista released Houstonís album in the U.S. while Sony Music did the honors in Europe and RCA Records handled the CDís release in the U.K. Whether that particular three-way is holding up any kind of official tour announcement is anyoneís guess, but the artist does have dates on the books. And thatís news.
What weíve pieced together so far is a schedule showing Houston in the U.K. for most of April, followed by Germany in May.
So far it looks as if Manchester, England, gets Houston first as the Manchester Evening News Arena welcomes her April 8. Other U.K. dates include Glasgow at the S.E.C.C. April 11; Birmingham at the LG Arena April 13; Newcastle upon Tyne at the Metro Radio Arena April 22 and Londonís O2 Arena April 25.
The first German date weíve found so far is May 13 in Leipzig at the Leipzig Arena. Other stops include Hannover at the TUI Arena May 16; Hamburg at the Color Line Arena May 17; Munich at Olympiahalle May 21; Stuttgart at Hanns Martin Schleyer Halle May 22; Oberhausen at Konig-Pilsener Arena May 26 and Mannheim at the SAP Arena May 29.
