Low ticket sales have forced singer, Nelly Furtado to scale back many shows and even cancel some scheduled tour dates.
The 34-year-old 'Maneater' singer is currently on tour in North America promoting 'The Spirit Indestructible', her most recent album. However the album has also suffered poor popularity, being her least successful album to date.
'The Spirit Indestructible' only managed to reach number 79 in the US album charts and number 46 in the UK charts.
This is in stark contrast to her 2006 album 'Loose' with hits 'Promiscuous Girl' and 'Maneater', which sold 12 million copies worldwide.
Furtado has been forced to cancel shows
The Globe and Mail reported that Live Nation, Furtado's promoter rescheduled her concert at Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver to smaller venue, due to low demand. Several shows have been forced to cancel for the same reasons, including a show at the Ottawa National Arts Centre.
Ironically, Furtado recently defended her poor album sales by championing her live shows, saying: "One chart or anything doesn't necessarily [mean everything] ... I can't wait to perform [my songs] live. That's my main goal."
Furtado's tour begins on January 8 and continues through to 15 March, ending at Caprices Festival.
