Singer Robert Goulet pulled out of a lengthy stint at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, saying he could not afford the $15,000 nightly showroom rental.
"I am angered and am saddened," Goulet told The Associated Press. "I was hoping to be there for three or four years. I enjoyed myself. I never sang better in my life."
Goulet ended the show after last Monday's performance, four weeks into a nine-week run. He said 50 percent attendance at his shows was needed to break even.
