Local news: Eagles, Dixie Chicks, King Sunny Ade, Swing Out Sister gigs canceled
By Ally Schweitzer
Area concert cancellations abound this Monday afternoon: Live Nation announced that the Eagles/Dixie Chicks/Keith Urban concert scheduled for June 15th at Nationals Park has been canceled due to scheduling conflicts.
Meantime, 80s synth poppers Swing Out Sister are stuck in the UK thanks to that crazy Icelandic volcano. Tonight's gig at the Birchmere has been postponed.
And tragically, African guitarist King Sunny Ade announced today that he's shelved his North American tour in the wake of a car crash that killed two members of his band.
Let's hope the rest of the spring concert season fares better than this.
