Due to Courtney Love's legal problems, her summer tour plans appear to have been severely compromised.
Though the singer's representatives anticipated that the outing, which was to begin this week, would be "slightly delayed," about half of Love's scheduled concert dates are being listed not as postponed, but canceled.
Love turned herself in on a felony assault charge Friday (see "Courtney Love Turns Herself In To Face Assault Charge"), and while her court dates in Los Angeles and New York have had an impact in the routing of the tour, her rep said that the latest arrest wasn't to blame for her itinerary meltdown. "Due to legal reasons, not necessarily the latest charge, her lawyers have advised her to delay the tour," Love's spokesperson Jill Fritzo said.
In the meantime, 10 out of 21 shows are being listed as canceled on Ticketmaster's Web site. A separate non-Ticketmaster date — to be played as part of New York's Central Park Summerstage series — is listed as canceled on the Summerstage Web site.
Venues and promoters have sent out cancellation notices to their local papers. One such notice, sent out Monday (June 14) from the Boston Clear Channel office, confirmed that Love's planned June 23 performance at the club Avalon was canceled and that refunds would be available at point of purchase.
However, Love's camp insists the tour is being rescheduled for August. "We are working on new dates now," Fritzo said.
