The Daily Mail reports that BBC show The Voice (UK) has cancelled its UK tour because of poor ticket sales.
A spokesperson confirmed that,
‘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.’
The Voice UK started out strong in the ratings but as the weeks went by the show gradually began to lose viewers, which explains why the BBC eventually decided to cancel the tour.
The Voice winner Leanne Mitchall and fellow finalists Bo Bruce, Vince Kidd, Becky Hill, Max Milner, Jaz Ellington, Tyler James and Ruth Brown were all set to tour around the UK, but now it looks like they will all have to go back to their day jobs for now.
I feel bad for the contestants though. They were probably all looking forward to performing and most importantly looking forward to making a little change.

The voice was not selling the same image or concept as x factor. It was not selling hype, but attempting to sell talent. The tour doesn’t seem to match the voice image. X factor feeds off the hype and excitement before it dies down, to sell their singles and tours. I don’t think the voice had that kind of hype because they emphasised the talent factor more than anything else.
I was actually considering purchasing a ticket in the beginning of the show, then it just got so cheesy.
I was so bored with this show. It just filled a lacklustre Saturday TV schedule in my house. I didn’t even know they we’re doing a tour until I found out it was canceled.
this is pretty sad but hey, the show must go on….
