As his UK and Irish dates are pulled, the former Boyzone star's manager says the star is "dismayed" over the flop of his new single...

MIKEY GRAHAM‘s manager has issued a statement on behalf of the beleaguered BOYZONEsinger, who has collapsed with nervous exhaustion after his last single, ‘YOU COULD BE MY EVERYTHING’ failed to breach the Top 50.

He said lack of support from UK radio and TV, who he said have ignored his solo efforts, led to the single’s poor performance, entering the charts at Number 62 when it was released on April 2.

His manager John Campbell posted a message on Graham’s website, Mikey at UK TV and radio. This seems very unfair, especially as no-one is criticising the quality of the music. This has meant the record will not be stocked in some shops.

“He genuinely wants me to tell you how sorry he is at the poor reaction his record has received, but hopes that nonetheless you will enjoy the album.”

Mikey was due to kick off an extensive tour of the UK and Ireland at Time in Bangor on April 25, but according to ananova.com, Campbell announced this afternoon that the tour has been cancelled.
