LATEST: Two of aspiring rapper Kevin Federline's live performances were cancelled on Monday (30OCT06) - one day before his debut album is set to be released (31OCT06). Britney Spears' husband is planning to launch his new CD PLAYING WITH FIRE with five guest appearances around the US, but lacklustre ticket sales have caused two and possibly three shows to be cancelled. According to American publication Star, his 9 November (06) gig at House of Blues in Cleveland, Ohio has already been scrapped, even though tickets were priced at an affordable $20-$22 (GBP11-12). A message on the venue's website states, "Show has been cancelled. There is no rescheduled date. Refunds are available at point of purchase." Federline's performance at the House of Blues in Atlantic City, New Jersey has also been cancelled, according to the House of Blues website. Tickets to that show were selling for $15-$17 each (GBP8-9). The former back-up dancer's gig on 4 November (06) at New York City's Webster Hall also looks like it's in jeopardy with an insider at the venue telling the New York Post that so few of the $20 (GBP11) tickets have been sold, "We may just cancel it."
