People, you can't tell me you have never called in sick before. Kelly would never intentionally hurt her fans. Everyone knows she loves to perform live more than anything. As for her weight, WHO CARES. She is still a beautiful woman.
The fact is she is human, she will get sick vocally or physically from time to time. CUT HER SOME SLACK!!!!

Agreed. Why would she fly for Texas, have a warm-up, and then all of a sudden cancel? She checked in with a doctor, and then canceled due to the superficial reasons other posters have given? Some people only want to put down others, to make them feel better. You think that attitude would have been left behind in elementary school.
Probably just too much food on a stick before the show.

Who cares, c'mon PP, has to be something more significant than this to put on the top of the page.

As someone who bought tickets to said concert, it kind of sucks that this is the SECOND time she has cancelled a show here in MN. I will not waste my time buying tickets in the future, but I will still listen to her music. Eric Hutchinson rocked the free show!

When did she cancel another show? I went to her state theather show...which was amazing, but I hardly even heard information about that show, so when was there another one?

The State Theatre show was a re-schedule.

Wonder if any of the posters on this thread would ever be allowed (much less asked) to do so much as a free show at one of the bandshells?

I've never listened to Ms. Clarkson, and haven't followed her career at all, but c'mon. The responses here are just unseemly.

So all of you people on here being so negative, did any of you have tickets to the show?? If so, would you have rather she go on stage w/ laryngitis and sound like crap?? If she had done that, you would have all complained after the show and wanted your money back anyway.....

Has she become that big that we don't deserve her graces in "Fly-Over Land"?

As I predicted when this show was announced. You just cannot put a gal like Kelly in an environment surrounded buy so much fried food.

You know she was on her third boat of cheese curds and her fifth pronto pup. After she washed it down with all the cotton candy you know she was going to have a killer tummy ache.

8,000 tickets sold isn't poor tickets sales. I wouldn't say diva either, because she was there, and must've planned on performing because she did sound check earlier, must be just voice issues.
Kid Rock sold 14,000 tickets. Kid bleeping Rock, people.

Let's be real she is a diva, and was afraid the cooler air may be too hard on her throat and herself.

I can not believe Reba McIntrye lowered herself to tour with her. She learned nothing from Reba on the importance of being reliable and appreciating the fans who spend their hard earned money to buy her tickets.

She should go home and stay there.

She cancelled the last time she was on tour here, either the Target or Xcel, I can't remember which one. Granted it was ahead of time (for lack of ticket sales) that time, but still it was a let down to not get to see her again, especially when I heard her practicing 3 hours before the concert was supposed to start. Also, it would be nice to be refunded the admission ($22) to the fair, since that was the only reason I went there.

Smart girl. Do not push it and take a chance of doing real damage to your vocal cords! Speedy recovery!
