Bruce Springsteen’s ticket holdbacks and Motörhead’s latest summer touring plans are top headlines for the daily tour recap on June 22, as compiled by TicketNews.
The battle continues between Bruce Springsteen and Ticketmaster, with manager Jon Landau coming out swinging against allegations that the performer’s extensive ticket holdbacks had repercussions on the secondary market. In less incendiary news, Motörhead has announced plans for a late summer tour of North America, which will kick off August 28 and continue at least through October 9, though more dates are said to be on the way.
With a new record label to call home and new material reportedly on the way, Pinback has lined up a fall club tour of the U.S. and Canada. The current Monsters of Rock tour of Russia, headlined by Alice Cooper and Scorpions, crashed to a halt over the weekend when a stage collapsed. Finally, Bon Jovi and Crosby, Stills & Nash were just a few of the inductees at the 2009 Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony in New York City.
Those are the complete reports for this Monday, but that’s not all TicketNews has in store for you. Let your eyes mosey on down the page for highlights from the day’s other concert and tour updates in brief:
