WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Fear not, Liza Minnelli fans. The Broadway legend is still on schedule to perform in Wilmington next week even after having to cancel appearances across the pond this week.
“Liza Minnelli’s appearances in the UK were unfortunately cancelled because of the promoter’s failure to pay,” Minnelli’s publicist Scott Gorenstein told WWAY in an e-mail Friday. “Due to current economics and unusually high ticket prices, the producer was unable to secure the promised funds.”
Tickets to the shows, which Gorenstein said were not concerts, but Q&A with a moderator ending with Minnelli singing a few songs with piano accompaniment, reportedly cost about $450.
Gorenstein said the British cancellations do not affect Minnelli’s Oct. 3 performance in Wilmington, when she will join the North Carolina Symphony for the gala opening of Cape Fear Community College’s Humanities and Fine Arts Center.
A CFCC spokesman says the school has sold more than 1,000 tickets for the show in the 1,500-seat auditorium. Tickets for the black-tie event are $225. Proceeds benefit the CFCC Foundation.

Tickets refunded for Liza Minnelli's Palladium concert

Tickets refunded for Liza Minnelli's Palladium concert~ The event has been called off by producers
Ticket holders for An Intimate Evening with Liza Minnelli, that was due to play at the Palladium on Sunday (20 September), have been refunded.
The show was due to be presented by veteran entertainer Bruce Forsyth and would have included an in-depth Q&A and a selection of songs. Tickets were priced up to £175.
Minnelli has a long association with the Palladium stretching back to 1964 when she joined her mother in concert. She performed solo concerts at the venue in 1973, 1978 and 1986.
The show was being produced by Rocco Buonvino, who was behind similar events featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone.
There has been no official statement from producers regarding the cancellation.
A representative of the Cabaret star said: "For months Liza has been preparing for these shows and she was devastated to hear of this unfortunate news. She has always thought of London a second home and will miss seeing her friends and devoted fans."
Minnelli's dates in Sheffield and Glasgow have also been cancelled.

Liza Minnelli Unfazed By Agent's Memoir

In June (15), Stevie Phillips released Judy & Liza & Robert & Freddie & David & Sue & Me in which she wrote about the drug abuse suffered by the star's late mother Judy Garland, and detailed Minnelli's own problems with addiction.
When asked about the book during an interview with Britain's Weekend magazine, Minnelli acts unaware of its existence and explains that she refuses to read anything about herself upon the advice of late actress Dame Elizabeth Taylor.
Minnelli says, "I never read any of that stuff... Because it might upset me... She (Taylor) told me she never read a single thing about herself, so I stopped, right there and then, which meant there was never anything lousy going around in my brain. That was good advice."
When asked if she would like to set the record straight with her own autobiography, she replies, "I don't feel like it. I don't want to do it unless I'm really enthusiastic about it. Right now I'm too enthusiastic about so many other things. The way I see it, I'm at the bow of a boat moving ahead. All the nonsense behind me is the wake and I'm impervious to it as I plough on."
Minnelli entered rehab earlier this year (15) to tackle substance abuse issues

"I'm Not Going Anywhere" - Liza Minnelli Talks Perseverance, Concerts, and More!"  BROADWAYWORLD.COM
Surviving is an instinct which means it just comes naturally. I don't examine it. I just get right on and do it," Minneli says. "I'm still here. My job is to prove them wrong. And I'm not going anywhere." Thank goodness for that!
When asked about a recent tell-all book written about her mother Judy Garland, which claims to expose the "real Judy," Minnelli just lets it roll off, saying, "I never read any of that stuff, because it might upset me. [Elizabeth Taylor] told me she never read a single thing about herself, so I stopped too, right there and then, which meant there was never anything lousy going round in my brain. That was good advice."
As for a Liza autobiography? We won't be seeing one anytime soon.
"I don't feel like it. I don't want to do it unless I'm really enthusiastic about it," she says. "Right now I'm too enthusiastic about so many other things. The way I see it, I'm at the bow of a boat moving ahead. All the nonsense behind me is the wake and I'm impervious to it as I plough on."
Her upcoming concerts at the London Palladium in September will feature pre-show Q and A sessions, and the fearless Minnelli isn't screening the questions beforehand. "They can ask me anything they want! I've always liked a live audience. I find it scary when there's no audience - on TV, in films. There's this woman singing in my head who wants to tell her own story. I was a teenager when I started singing and I wasn't very good. That's why I developed the trick of acting out the songs."
As for her continuing performance schedule, she doesn't seem to want to stop anytime soon, or even slow down. "Performers like to perform. It's what I do." She says not even the notion of turning 70 can be a deterrent, "Listen, everyone ages but not everyone has to get old. I've never lost my curiosity and I think that keeps you young."

Liza Minnelli was born in Los Angeles and made her screen debut as a toddler in the musical In the Good Old Summertime in 1949. One of the world's best-loved entertainers, she won Tony awards for Flora, the Red Menace in 1965, Liza at the Winter Garden in 1977, The Act in 1978 and Liza's at the Palace in 2009. Nominated for an Academy Award for The Sterile Cuckoo in 1969, she went on to win the Best Actress prize for her best-known film, Cabaret (1973), which also won her a Golden Globe Award and a BAFTA. She won an Emmy for Liza with a Z (72) and was also the recipient of a Grammy Legend Award in 1990 making her one of the few artists who have won entertainment's top six awards. Film credits include Charlie Bubbles (67), Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon (70), Lucky Lady (75), A Matter of Time (76), New York, New York (77), Arthur (81), Stepping Out (91), and Oh In Ohio (06).
Sir Bruce Forsyth is one of the UK's most loved stars and has now been in showbusiness for eight decades. It is a career that started in the middle of World War Two when, aged just 14, he left school and began performing professionally billed as "Boy Bruce The Mighty Atom". Sixteen years later in 1958, he became an "overnight" star when he was chosen to host Sunday Night At The London Palladium and he has appeared consistently on prime time television in the UK ever since - The Generation Game, Play Your Cards Right, Bruce's Price Is Right, You Bet!, numerous specials including Sammy and Bruce and Strictly Come Dancing from which he retired last year as main presenter after 11 series. A consummate live performer with numerous theatrical appearances across the world, most recent challenges and successes have included performing his 'One Man' Show at The Royal Albert Hall and making his debut (as an octogenarian!) at The Glastonbury Festival. In 1998 he was awarded the OBE, in 2006, the CBE and in 2011 a Knighthood for his services to the entertainment industry while in 2008, as well as celebrating his 80th birthday, Bruce was awarded a BAFTA Fellowship, the highest accolade the Academy can bestow.
Rocco Buonvino (Promoter) has staged some of the biggest global entertain ment events, from sold-out concerts to musical theatre productions and bespoke events with superstar artists. To name just a few: Robin Gibb's TitanicRequiem Concert at Westminster Central Hall, shows by world renowned artists such as Cliff RichardRod Stewart, The Chemical Brothers, Duran Duran, and the starp-studded Beatles Symphonica, held at The Royal Albert Hall, star performers included Dame Shirley BasseyTony ChristieBeverley Knight and Susan Black.

Liza Minnelli sells showstopper home for $8.37M

Liza Minnelli sells showstopper home for $8.37M

Legendary performer Liza Minnelli has sold her iconic Upper East Side home for $8.37 million, according to city property records.
Although Minnelli has been spending more time in Los Angeles for work and to be closer to her family and friends, she “will always consider New York to be her home,” says Scott Gorenstein, a spokesperson for Minnelli. “While she sold her apartment, Liza still plans to spend a lot of time in the city and will be here in the upcoming weeks to rehearse her new show, “Great Day.”
The apartment was on the 21st floor of the Imperial House, a non descript post-war building by Emery Roth & Sons at 150 East 69th Street.
The buyers are Robert Beyer and Loren Pack.
The Cabaret star, whose gutsy, full-of-life performances have become part of New York’s cultural fabric, has been battling substance abuse — like her late mother, Judy Garland, before her.
Earlier this year, Minnelli was in a Malibu rehab clinic.
Her latest song, “Until the End,” with Wynton Marsalis, was written and produced by Oscar-nominated composer and producer J. Ralph. The home sale was first reported in the Real Deal.
