'NSYNC Cancel First Boston Area Show

Promoter says not enough time to set up stage.

Boston area 'NSYNC fans will have one less chance to see their idols in concert, as the group canceled the first of its three shows at Foxboro Stadium.

Radio station WBCN-FM is sponsoring its River Rave — a festival featuring Marilyn Manson, Black Crowes and Fatboy Slim — at the stadium on May 26, which won't leave the 'NSYNC crew enough time to set up the group's massive stage show in time for the originally scheduled May 30 performance, according to a spokesperson for local promoter the Don Law Company.

Fans who've already purchased tickets to that show can exchange them for tickets to 'NSYNC's May 31 or June 1 shows at Foxboro Stadium. Exchanges are available on a first-come, first-serve basis until 5 p.m. ET May 28.

The May 31 and June 1 shows had sold out, but the promoter said that stage modifications have freed up additional seats.

'NSYNC's PopOdyssey tour will kick off May 23 at Alltel Stadium in Jacksonville, Florida (see "'NSYNC Push Back Tour, Album Release").
