So much for Cee Lo Green’s Las Vegas debut this year.

The singer has officially postponed his “Cee Lo Green IS Loberace” show – which was scheduled to open Aug. 29 at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino — until February.

On Tuesday, the Las Vegas Sun reported that the show would be postponed so the Atlanta-born Green could honor his judging commitments on “The Voice” and also because the staging – expected to be quite a spectacle – required more time and work than initially planned.

Green confirmed the postponement Wednesday night in a statement. The new opening date is Feb. 27. Those who already purchased tickets can exchange them for a new date or receive a refund. New tickets for the show – which will still be held at Planet Hollywood – go on sale Aug. 1 through Ticketmaster.

Green’s show is expected to be a frothy, colorful presentation, similar to Liberace’s famed Vegas performances.

Will he even be relevant next year?
His Atlanta show was just cancelled due to poor ticket sales-

“Nah”…totally agree! His “15 minutes” has long come & gone, just another “flash in the pan”. Who’ll even remember him 10 years from now?

You people on here are stupid as hell! Cee-Lo has been on the scene since 1995 and is still here. I think the first 3 comments on here are from the same person…….

“15 minutes” ha! Yall are crazy, Carlos has been in the music industry since I was in middle school (early 90’s), has ton’s of hits, grammy’s, and writes for a number of artist that are on the charts now. Even if this show doesn’t happen believe me he is not hurting. I just wish we could get a Goodie Mob reunion album.
