MADONNA CANCELS NJ CONCERT:
Madonna's Friday night (8/3) concert at the Continental Airlines Arena in
East Rutherford, N.J., has been canceled, promoter Clear Channel
Entertainment announced. According to the artist's management, she is
suffering from laryngitis.
The canceled show--which will not be rescheduled--was to have been Madonna's
seventh sold-out performance in the New York area. The decision not to
reschedule immediately drew an angry response from fans posting on her
official website <http://www.madonnamusic.com>.
"I think it's absolutely ridiculous that she didn't re-schedule the concert,"
one fan wrote. "I think it's safe to say that she alienated a lot of her fans
for not being willing to move the show to a later date."
All Ticketmaster phone and Internet orders will be automatically refunded and
credited to the card holder within two weeks, according to a press release.
Tickets purchased at Ticketmaster outlets and at the Continental Airlines
Arena box office will be refunded at the point of purchase. (Ticketmaster is
LiveDaily's parent company.)
Madonna's tour is expected to resume in Boston on Aug. 7 and 8.

U2 Plans More US Tour Dates:
U2, which wraps up a tour of Europe later this month, plans to return to
North America later this year to play 25 additional concert dates, the Times
of London reported this week.
Though there have been persistent rumors that more North American dates will
be added, no dates have been confirmed by the band or by concert organizers.
The Times of London reported that U2's Elevation tour has grossed $142
million from worldwide ticket sales, and the that the new dates are expected
to gross an additional $33 million. According to Pollstar, U2's March-June
run through North America grossed $69 million.
If estimates prove accurate--and if U2 does add the additional dates--U2's
Elevation Tour could rank as the third-highest grossing North American tour
of all time, behind 1994 outings by the Rolling Stones ($121 million) and
Pink Floyd ($103.5 million), according to Pollstar.
311 To Headline Following Warped Tour
As its stint on the Warped Tour winds down, 311 has revealed the dates for a
late summer headlining tour.
Warped ends on Sunday (8/12) in Pontiac, Mich., after which 311 heads to
Europe for a handful of shows. The band returns to the United States in late
August and begins its stateside tour on Sept. 8 in San Diego. The last date,
according to its official website <http://www.311music.com>, is a Halloween
show in Los Angeles.
The group will then spend the early part of November in Japan.
All of the dates are in support of 311's latest record, "From Chaos," 311's
first for Volcano/Zomba.
