Cee-Lo Green is postponing the debut of his new Las Vegas show, Loberace, due to scheduling conflicts with The Voice, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

"It's always been a dream of mine to be among the great music legends who have had a Las Vegas residency, and I was very much looking forward to launching Loberace this year," Cee-Lo said in a statement, adding that the show will now premiere in early 2013.

Inspired by the flamboyant costumes and theatrics of Liberace and promising "mind-twisting magic and sexified showgirls," Green's Loberace was set to start August 29th at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Dates have been rescheduled starting in late February 2013 and will run through April 13th; tickets go on sale August 1st. Those who purchased tickets for the initially announced run can exchange theirs for a rescheduled date or receive a refund.

"Most importantly," added Cee-Lo, "to all my fans who have already purchased tickets, please accept my sincerest apology and I hope you can still join me in Vegas next year, so I can properly and finally introduce you to my brainchild.”

With The Voice set to return on September 10th, two of Cee-Lo's fellow judge's have received their advisers: Mary J. Blige has joined Adam Levine's team and Michael Buble is partnering with Blake Shelton.

Cee-Lo also recently reconnected with his roots, reuniting with his group Goodie Mob, who helped him out during his set at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival this past spring.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
