Connie Fisher Denies Tour Axe on GMTV

27 February 2008

Connie Fisher has described her life as “madness” since leaving The Sound of Music.

Talking on the breakfast TV show, the winner of How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria? revealed she’s taking no time off before her next project after a “tiring and exhilarating” run as Maria von Trapp.

“My whole year has been planned out for me,” said Connie. “I’m recording my second album at the moment so I’m in and out of the studio. I’m about to film with ITV as well, so I’ve got lots of lines to learn and lots of other mountains to climb!”

Reacting to rumours that her upcoming tour faces the axe after poor tickets sales, Connie said: “It’s been postponed.”

“When you’re in a show six days a week, trying to record your album, and you’re coming out of the show, there’s a lot of hype around it,” added Connie. “We really want to make an album that is going to be around for 10 years, not one that’s going to be on the shelf for two weeks. So we’ve put a lot of time into that – so the tour was pushed back. Hopefully once the album’s out, the tour will be on again.”
