Robin Thicke Concerts Get Canceled and Discounted

Robin Thicke has been going through something of a personal crisis of late. His split with wife Paula Patton played out in bold type across gossip rag headlines. Despite his best efforts to win her back, it looks like you can stick a fork in Robin and Paula.

Now a picture is taking shape that could make things even worse. Thicke’s latest album, called Paula, in what seems to be a shameless attempt to get her back, has been roundly panned.

But that’s not all. There have also been concert cancellation concerns from the Thicke camp. Back in February, Thicke backed out on a gig at a casino in North Carolina “due to unforeseen circumstances”.

Then came a concert cancellation in Indiana, the same day that Thicke was spotted on the beach with his son and a mystery woman, whom he later explained to be his nanny.

And now there is news that a show that will presumably go on is discounting tickets. Tickets for the Illinois State Fair concert on August 17 were originally $40 for Tier 3, $45 for Tier 2, and $50 for Tier 1. They have now been discounted to $25 for a Tier 2 or Tier 3 Grandstand seat, $35 for a Tier 1 seat and $45 for a VIP ticket right up at the stage.

Is Thicke’s stock dropping so badly that they have to discount his tickets? At a state fair?

Recently, Robin’s dad Alan spoke out about how he raised his kids and his desire just to see them happy. He backed Robin’s play in dedicating an entire album to his estranged wife.

“My advice to Robin is listen to your heart, do what you feel,” Alan Thicke said. “Follow your heart in love and marriage as you would in careers and you’ll be fine. Robin has a great heart. He’s a fabulous father. He obviously followed his heart in creating and devoting an entire album to Paula and I believe you can’t go wrong that way.”

    If not for Paula I would not know who he was.

      Robin has been a popular RnB singer for several years, he wrote songs for stevie wonder as well……..its too bad that he isnt popular these days, perhaps it would have been better for him to keep his personal life private…….

      • Deborah

        Yes, Robin only sang Jungle Fever by Stevie and was influenced by him in his music but he never wrote anything for him.

    • abob

      Thicke didn’t write anything for Stevie Wonder. Thicke drew influence from Wonder and others.

  • Bee

    And he also “followed his heart” when blatantly disrespecting and stepping out on his wife. So hey….you reap what you sew. But good luck to him still.

    • Deborah

      It’s “sow.”

      • Bee

        Well good thing you knew what I meant then huh?

  • Deborah

    Paula who?

  • Deborah

    I think people are confused. Paula met Robin when she was 16 in 1991. I don’t think she would be anything without Robin.

    • Deborah

      Paula was a dancer. Is a dancer.

    • Nanette Wilkins

      Now he seems to be nothing w/o her. He wrote a song called”Lost without you” .Life imitating art.

      • Summer

        That song is from YEARS before they split…

  • Drew Pierce

    It all traces to that moronic decision to be the background for Miley Cyrus’ publicity stunt at the VMAs. It made Miley look like Miley, and made Robin look like a chump, a pedophile, and a philanderer. That was the beginning of the end for his marriage and his career. And to think no one was hotter in music before that night …

    • Jade

      Absolutely right! That is where it started. Made Miley a household name and made him bomb. Paula tried to say afterwards that it didnt bother her. yeah right.

  • Deborah

    When you cheat and lie to your spouse…….you are not a good person and father. He needs to get his head on straight or he will continue to go down hill.His dad needs to not give him advice…….. he sounds a bit goofy too. So sad , she was as much to blame…… ya can’t have it both ways in a marriage and make it last. Poor kids.They are the ones that get hurt.

  • Nanette Wilkins

    Apparently, their problems go back a few years. He said in an interview that they started drifting apart…they’ve really never gotten a chance to sow their wild oats, so to speak.always sad to see families break apart.

  • Aunt Carol

    I hope this Thicke-headed man suffers to the same degree that his lyrics have spread throughout the collective. Here is just a copy/paste from his controversial song “blurred lines” in which he refers to ripping a woman’s anus open. I had danced to that wonderful song never suspecting what the real lyrics were. When I found out, I stopped listening to that song and permanently X-ed Thick off The Book of Life. Here is the portion of the lyrics copy-pasted from You-Tube. I’m glad his wife escaped this sick man. What’s really sick though are all the men and women out there who would still uphold and defend this:
    One thing I ask of you
    Let me be the one you back that ass to
    Go, from Malibu, to Paris, boo
    Yeah, I had a bitch, but she ain’t bad as you
    So hit me up when you pass through
    I’ll give you something big enough to tear your ass in two
    Swag on, even when you dress casual
    I mean it’s almost unbearable
    In a hundred years not dare, would I
    Pull a Pharside let you pass me by
    Nothing like your last guy, he too square for you
    He don’t smack that ass and pull your hair like that
    So I just watch and wait for you to salute
    But you didn’t pick
    Not many women can refuse this pimpin’
    I’m a nice guy, but don’t get it if you get with me
