The Voice tour is no more

TV singing programme The Voice's tour won't be happening.
Great deals on musical instruments
Fans in the likes of Sheffield and Cardiff were set to be able to see performers from The Voice take part in tie-in live gigs later in 2012.

However, Radio 1 Newsbeat has now reported that the TV singing show's tour will no longer be taking place. And it says that "a lack of ticket sales" is behind the move.

When it was on TV earlier in the year, The Voice included the presence of Price Tag crooner Jessie J, Tom Jones, and Danny O'Donoghue from guitar band The Script as coaches.

It was won by the singer Leanne Mitchell. Other contestants included Bo Bruce, Tyler James, Matt and Suleen, Ruth Brown and Vince Kidd.

"Unfortunately, The Voice UK Live has been cancelled due to lack of ticket sales. Customers are advised to contact their point of purchase for ticket refunds," Newsbeat quotes one spokesperson from the tour's organisers as saying.
