'Super gig' For Japan Cancelled0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:10 pm

A gig at Wembley Arena next month that was to be held to raise money in aid of the disaster in Japan has been cancelled, due to lack of artists willing to commit to play.

JapanLive Nation, the company who were promoting the show, said negotiations were happening with a number of huge artists, to turn the show into a worldwide event, with live broadcasts taking place on the BBC in the UK, and NBC in the US with other major TV channels around the world also owning rights to show the gig.

However, with only 13 days left to the concert, Live Nation were unable to secure bookings with any of the ‘major artists’ to perform at the event.

In a statement, Live Nation said: “Unfortunately, with now only 13 days to go to the proposed Concert For Japan, sadly we are in a position where we have been unable to secure the artists required to produce the worldwide TV broadcast that we had hoped for and have therefore very reluctantly decided to proceed no further.”

However there are other attempts from the music industry to raise money for Japan, with an album consisting of songs by big name artists such as Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Rihanna released onto iTunes last week, and a different concert on Sunday night with performances from Beady Eye, Primal Scream, Graham Coxon, The Coral and Richard Ashcroft is scheduled to take place at O2 Academy Brixton in London, amongst other donations and fund raisers from other individual artists.

It’s a shame no artists were able to commit as I’m sure this would have been a massive event that would have the world watching and certainly gather a lot of money that could save lives!
