Tina Campbell To ‘Postpone’ Tour Due to Low Ticket Sales
Tina Campbell’s “It’s Still Personal” tour has been postponed because she doesn’t have any support. Her goal of returning the tour to the masses is aimed for Spring 2018.
In an Instagram Post the singer states:
“I’d like to say THANK YOU to all who have purchased tickets for the ‘It’s Still Personal Tour’. Our hope is that all who have attended, have been thoroughly blessed. We are grateful for those who were planning to attend but our overall ticket sales haven’t shown that we have the support that we need to continue the tour at this time,”.
“We’re convince that many more would love the opportunity to attend this praise filled, faith filled, entertaining, worship experience, so we have decided to give ourselves time to reach all of those people and bring this amazing tour back in the spring of 2018,” the message continued.
It is likely the low tickets sales reflect the backlash Tina has received after defending her stance on Donald Trump.
Earlier in the year, Tina posted a letter on her position to her Facebook page. Part of it reads as follows:
“I believe that understanding and compassion [are] absolutely necessary for the progress of all people,” Campbell wrote. “So, although I don’t always understand or agree with Mr. Donald Trump’s politics, perspective, and approach, I believe that the same God that created all of us has deposited greatness inside of him that goes far beyond what many of us have seen and what many of us could imagine.”
“I choose to stand with him, and pray for him; because, as a follower of Jesus Christ and a firm believer in the Holy Bible, according to 1 Timothy 2:1-3, I have been commanded to: ‘The first thing I want you to do is pray every way you know how… especially for rulers and their governments, to rule well. This is the way our Savior God wants us to live,’” she wrote.
