Jones Cancels Gigs Over Contract Dispute
Singer Grace Jones has axed four concerts in Ireland after her representative accused promoters of a breach of contract.
The Pull Up to the Bumper hitmaker was scheduled to perform shows in Dublin and Cork next month (Jul10) but the gigs have now been cancelled.
Her agent Michael Schweiger has accused organisers Rockefeller Productions of failing to secure an agreement with Jones before advertising the concerts.
In a statement, he says, "The reported performance dates for Grace Jones in Dublin and Cork (from) July 21-24 have been cancelled. The promoter... is in breach of his contract by failing to pay deposits and advertising these dates without a fully executed artist agreement. We apologise to Grace's devoted fans there in Ireland and hope to be in concert there in the near future."
Fans who have already bought tickets for the cancelled concerts are advised to return to the point of purchase for a refund.
