I disagree with Gary Morris here, especially considering the fact that a lot of people had actually paid money for their tickets already.  If it had simply been a rumored tour that never materialized then perhaps a fan has no right to question the decision.  However, once you tell somebody you are going to visit and they start making arrangements and expenditures to see you and you suddenly back out, don't you think they have a little bit of a right to know why? I understand they may have "personal" reasons but they could at least say the cancellation is due to "personal" issues.  To tell someone that they have no right to ask why you are not doing something you had said you were is wrong.
