McBride bags European dates

Wednesday, April 28, 2010 – Martina McBride had to bag her six-date tour of Europe in late June and early July due to scheduling conflicts and routing issues.

McBride said on her web site, "just found out (Tuesday) that our trip to Europe is being postponed because of scheduling and routing issues over which I have no control. I won't bore you with the details, but suffice it to say I'm really disappointed and sorry. I was truly looking forward to playing the shows in Norway and the UK. We had a blast last year and it was an amazing experience playing for so many enthusiastic fans."

"I'm so sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. I know many of you were looking forward to these shows as well and have already made travel plans, etc. I wish there was some way I could change it, but unfortunately there are a lot of details and people that go into planning a tour overseas, and this is just out of my control. Hopefully we can get this tour back on the schedule sooner than later."

"Once again, I am sorry. Thanks for your understanding," McBride wrote.

She did not go into details about the exact issues.

Tour dates were:

June 25 Stavanger Norway Forus Travbane

June 26 Skien Norway Telemark Live

June 28 London United Kingdom Indigo2

June 30 Killarney Ireland INEC

July 1 Dublin Ireland Helix

July 2 Castlebar Ireland Theatre Royal

So, as you might expect, this music is a throwback to the kinds of albums The Rat Pack (and their contemporaries) once recorded at that same studio mostly in the '60s. McBride's version of "Winter Wonderland" is representative of the sort of music she's recorded for this project. It features a full string ...
CD review - Reckless Stephen King tells us "Talent is cheaper than table salt." And what a shaker-full is contained on Martina McBride's latest. Songwriters? Hillary Lindsey, Sarah Buxton and Liz Rose are amongst the world's finest. For a producer, how about Faith Hill's or Taylor Swift's? And lest we forget - McBride herself possesses the best, hemi-powered soprano of any working singer today. This is gaudy, Dream Team level stuff. So, why isn't it better? It's been ...
CD review - Everlasting When an established artist is somewhat "in between" albums, a greatest hits package can often bridge that gap. Or a live album. Or perhaps a cringe-worthy Christmas album. If you're Rod Stewart you can create a cottage industry from old standards. But few decide to try to enhance or pay tribute to old soul songs that can almost never be duplicated. However Martina McBride decided to go down that road on her latest offering with acclaimed producer Don Was helping out. ...
