Cee Lo Green postpones Las Vegas residency

Cee Lo Green has postponed his upcoming Las Vegas residency due to a scheduling conflict with his work on The Voice.

Green was due to launch his "Loberace" show on August 29 at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

The production has now been postponed until next year.

“It's always been a dream of mine to be among the great music legends who have had a Las Vegas residency and I was very much looking forward to launching ‘Loberace’ this year,” said Green. “But, as we move into the third season of The Voice, with my dedicated commitment to the filming schedule and love for my role on the show, I will need to postpone the opening of ‘Loberace’ to early 2013. Most importantly, to all my fans who have already purchased tickets, please accept my sincerest apology and I hope you can still join me in Vegas next year, so I can properly and finally introduce you to my brainchild, ‘Loberace’! Thank you for your patience and understanding.”

Shows will now begin February 27, 2013 – tickets for the new dates go on sale August 1.

"The production will combine Cee Lo's flamboyant sense of style and over-the-top creativity," producers said in a statement, adding that the show "will be as inspired and visually alive as Cee Lo Green."

Organizers say the show will include a musical journey through time, with tributes to Prince and the Rolling Stones. "Mind-twisting magic and sexified showgirls" are also on tap.

Season 3 of The Voice begins airing in September.
