The opening date of the tour has now been scheduled for Thursday in Manchester. As for the Paris date, it will be rescheduled.

Reports claim that fans who recently went to see Houston at her Australia concert were not impressed with her vocals. Just last year, Houston released her first album in seven years, I Look At You. The new album features artists like Alicia Keys and R. Kelly. Although the album has sold well, some critics have criticized the singer for not being able to hit the high notes.

Back in 2007, she divorced singer Bobby Brown after 14 years of marriage. Houston currently has custody of the couple's teenage daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
