A representative for Jill Scott has cleared up the confusion surrounding the cancellations on her tour with Maxwell, insisting the R&B singer/actress is still on board to perform all shows she signed up for.
Soul star Maxwell announced on Wednesday (16Jun10) he was scrapping the second half of his U.S. trek, with his spokesperson blaming "scheduling conflicts" for the axe. The affected shows were set to take place between 28 June (10) and 15 July (10) in cities such as Nashville, Tennessee and Boston, Massachusetts.
It was rumoured the star pulled the concerts after falling out with his supporting acts Scott and Erykah Badu for over-running their allotted time slots, but Scott's publicist slammed the reports - insisting Maxwell was "a consummate gentleman and tour mate".
Now her spokesman has reached out to fans to assure them she will still be a part of the remaining live dates, before taking her bow at the upcoming sold out gig at New York's Madison Square Garden on 25 June (10).
A statement released to WENN reads, "In response to rumours regarding the 2010 Maxwell /Jill Scott tour, all lasting dates including June 18th (Washington D.C), June 19th (Philadelphia), June 21st (Connecticut), June 22 (Virginia Beach) and June 25th (NYC) are scheduled to run as planned...
"She looks forward to sharing the rest of the tour with all of the supportive followers."
