    LOLLAPALOOZA, 2004 CANCELS ALL DATES


    Los Angeles, CA - June 22, 2004 -- Even with what has been touted as the best line-up since its inception in 1991, with such eclectic and respected artists as Morrissey, Sonic Youth, PJ Harvey, and The Flaming Lips, among others, and the most competitive ticket prices in the marketplace for a tour this size, it was not enough to counter the weak economic state of this years summer touring season. Therefore, it is with the utmost regret that due to poor ticket sales across the board, the Lollapalooza, 2004 tour has been cancelled. This morning, tour organizers and concert promoters faced with several million dollars of losses, made the very tough decision to pull the tour.

    Marc Geiger, co-founder of the tour stated, "I am in utter disbelief that a concert of this stature, with the most exciting line-up I've seen in years did not galvanize ticket sales. I'm surprised that given the great bands and the reduced ticket prices that we didn't have enough sales to sustain the tour. Concert promoters across the country are facing similar problems. Many summer tours are experiencing weak ticket sales."

    Alex Hodges, Executive Vice President of HOB Concerts, commented, "In real terms, it's been a tough summer. Ticket sales have been mixed and often inexplicably soft. There are a number of contributing factors, and, as a result, many tours have been cut-back, rerouted or cancelled."

    Fans who have supported the tour and who have bought tickets nationwide will be given full refunds.

    wow, that just goes to show you that most of the kiddies today have bad taste in music.

    the billing for that show sounded pretty sick, too bad.

    i guess it's all about fake punk rock and hot topic!

    You have no taste in music. I don't particularly like punk or hip-hop but I wouldn't hesitate for a second to go to any live music event, because I don't have some closeted homosexual notion that the type of music I listen to defines me as a man. You fucking idiot.

    I'd go just to see the flaming lips, if it was still on. Them and just about every other band that was supposed to be there. I'll have to catch them sometime soon. I just spent a good minute laughing at the people buying tickets on eBay right now, most of the auctions have no bids but there are plenty that do.
