Former Atomic Kitten singer Kerry Katona has cancelled her one-woman tour after just 42 tickets were sold for the opening night.

‘A Special Evening with Kerry Katona’ failed to attract much interest among fans, with the event at Melton Theatre in Leicestershire proving particularly unappealing. Just 42 £20 (€23/$25) tickets were sold for the 340-seat theatre.

Katona was due to entertain fans with the story of how she blew a fortune on booze, drugs and failed relationships.

Sources close to Katona told the Daily Star newspaper that the dates will be rescheduled for 2017 after the singer has completed a tour with the reformed Atomic Kitten.
