UPDATED! Outgoing: Ray J Show at Galaxy Canceled, Reality TV Fans Weep
Sorry, For the Love of Ray J fans. Not just sorry because you admit to liking For the Love of Ray J (that just means you're honest), but sorry because Ray J's show at the newly reopened Galaxy in Santa Ana, scheduled for Thursday May 7, has been canceled. Truly disappointing news for anyone hoping to attend and soak up some of his smooth playa ways.
Word from the Galaxy is that Ray J's booking agent double-booked him, and given that Ray J's MySpace has him playing in New York that night, there was clearly some epic miscommunication going on. According to the Galaxy, that night will instead feature Colby O'Donis, the featured artist on Lady Gaga's smash hit "Just Dance." Plus, he's never, to our knowledge, been in a sex tape with Kim Kardashian, so he's got that going for him. Ticketmaster still has the Ray J show listed, but it's gone from the Galaxy's site.
On the horizon for the Galaxy: the English Beat on May 9, De La Soul on June 20 (they were originally supposed to play the reopening of the venue in March), the Smithereens on July 24 and OMG, Warrant on August 14. Should be a cool drink of water; possibly a sweet surprise.
EDIT: Apparently the Colby O'Donis show isn't happening either: it's not on his MySpace, or the Galaxy's Web site.
