Volcanic Ash Forces Auf Der Maur To Scrap Concert

Rocker MELISSA AUF DER MAUR has been forced to scrap her weekend (17Apr10) concert in London - because the volcanic dust cloud over Europe has grounded flights across the continent.
Almost all air services in Europe have been cancelled because of volcanic ash floating in the skies above following the eruption of Iceland's Mount Eyjafjallajokull on Wednesday (14Apr10).
As a result, Auf Der Maur has been left stranded in Helsinki, Finland and she is now looking to reschedule Saturday's (17Apr10) London gig.
The former Hole rocker is not the only artist whose tour plans have been thrown into disarray due to the volcanic ash - pop star Mika has had to cancel his show in Lisbon, Portugal on Friday (16Apr10), while British rockers The Cribs, Los Campesinos! and Frightened Rabbit have also had to pull out of California's Coachella music festival this weekend (16-18Apr10).
