Timberlake And Aguilera Tour Faces Ticket Troubles

The STRIPPED AND JUSTIFIED tour of pop heavyweights JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE and CHRISTINA AGUILERA is being forced to scale down its venue sizes - because promoters are struggling to sell tickets.

According to American website PAGESIX, promoters CONCERTS WEST are looking for "more intimate" venues, although they deny this.

Last Wednesday's (11JUN03) cancelled opening gig in Vancouver, Canada was officially called off because of "long delays at the US/Canadian border resulting in insufficient set-up time for the tour's extensive production", but Chicago radio station KISS 103.5FM claim many seats were unsold.

The station said at the time, "The 45-city tour, already knocked down from 60 cities, may have to be moved to even smaller venues due to lacklustre ticket sales. It's hard to believe that Concerts West, which has promoted bigger tours by such superstars as the EAGLES and SHANIA TWAIN, didn't plan ahead for border issues."

But Aguilera's manager IRVING AZOFF insists, "We had 12,000 tickets sold, and we couldn't get the trucks through the border to get set up. There were some problems with some drivers with bad, old criminal records."
