Cee Lo Green postpones Las Vegas show opening

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Singer-songwriter Cee Lo Green says he's postponing the opening of his semi-permanent Las Vegas show because of his filming schedule for NBC's "The Voice."

The "Cee Lo Green Presents Loberace" show was set to launch Aug. 29 at the Planet Hollywood resort, but it's now scheduled to start Feb. 27. Ticketholders are eligible for refunds.

Green apologized for the postponement in a statement but says he has to keep commitments to the third season of the talent show.

The performer is most recently known for the Grammy-winning 2010 single "Forget You." He says the 28-show Las Vegas run will feature showgirls, pyrotechnics and other over-the-top touches.

Green is a coach on "The Voice." He's also one-half of the duo Gnarls Barkley, which produced the 2006 hit "Crazy."
