But she does like an all-night bender so by booking three different venues, at least the record label are assured on the law of averages that she'll turn up in one of them," a source said. "It's a pretty unprecedented move rehearsal spaces packed with professional gear and sound equipment do not come cheap, costing up to 1,000 pounds a day," the source added.
