Canceled: Raven-Symone


While demographic research tells us our readers skew a bit, er, mature to be likely ticket-holders for this show, in the spirit of providing up-to-the-minute news of all things calendar-y, we want to make sure none of our readers or their offspring end up teary-eyed in front of a deserted stadium on Saturday. To the point: We just received an e-mail informing us that Raven-Symone has canceled her upcoming tour "due to unforeseen circumstances." She was scheduled to perform at the UCF Arena on Saturday, April 26. Tickets are being refunded at point of purchase. You can still get your fix of the perky TV star via her website, on which she offers videos of craft projects and how-tos ("Raven teaches us how to make a cool new dog toy," "Raven teaches us all about the correct glue to use on our projects," and so on).
