Liza sends her regrets

She wanted to be here. She really, really did.

But Liza Minnelli was following doctors’ orders when she scrapped Friday night’s planned concert at Chastain Park Amphitheatre. Her representative sent us this statement on her behalf:

“I am having a lot of trouble with this ol’ knee of mine and as soon as I get it straightened out I’ll be back to see everybody in Atlanta.”

Previously, Team Liza had sent the following statement to explain why the concert didn’t happen.

“Minnelli has been on tour in recent weeks to promote her forthcoming CD and the constant traveling has resulted in a very painful and swollen knee. There is concern that her knee may have become infected which is not uncommon after this type of surgery. Such infections are very dangerous and doctors have ordered her to return to New York for further evaluation.”

The Chastain site bills Friday’s scotched performance as a postponed, not a canceled show. We’ll be on alert for news of a new date.

Actually, the Chastain website states the show was cancelled and refunds available. No mention of rescheduled date. I emailed “contact us” at Chastain directly on Saturday and asked if it was postponed or rescheduled or cancelled altogether. The response stated “The show has been cancelled.” :( I think her “problems” may have attributed to this “emergency” for us to have found out so late in the day that she had cancelled. She appeared a bit loopier than usual on HSN appearance. Pain drugs?

Dear Sharon,

Thanks for the update. Hmm. I guess it’s a little up in the air. But, hopefully you got your refund!

Well I see Nicole Bitchey has found a temperary new home. (What’s wrong baby, the heat too much for you on the other thread you’re trolling pissing on people’s disappointment?)
Still nothing to say about LIZA.
Still nothing to say about her concert.
Still nothing to say about the cancellation/postponement/reschedule.

JUST another pathetic attack at another poster disappointed that he wasn’t able to see her. And not one of them even remotely clever or intelligent enough (drink her “bathwater?) Pricelessly untrue and unrealistic attempt to insult….another big FAIL for she with so little verbal and intellectual ammo in her armory of one line snippits of BS intended to insult but dismally fails at.

3 words for Nicole….No Life LOSER.
It must be terribly sad to have a life as empty as Nicole’s to think this is the only pleasure she can find and still can’t succeed at it.

I eagerly await Ms. Minnelli’s return, and could actually give a crap about her “bathwater.”
Damn, Nic***, you need to get some new material. This weak crap is just too easy to blow aside. Without even half trying.
Verbally dueling with you is like shooting fish in a bucket.
