Cee Lo Green cancels on Good Vibrations

Currently riding a wave of international acclaim on the back of his latest album The Lady Killer and its big single – and likely Hottest 100 front runnerFuck You, enduring soul-rap warrior Cee Lo Green was set to hit Australia at the 2011 Good Vibrations festival alongside other big names such as Phoenix, Faithless and Nas. But then his name disappeared from the lineup…

FasterLouder can now reveal that the charismatic US artist has now cancelled his appearance at Good Vibes due to scheduling conflicts. Good Vibrations’ has issued a statement to confirm the cancellation: We can confirm that Cee Lo Green has been invited by the Recording Academy to perform live at the Grammy awards in February.
