Tibetan Freedom Concert In London Scrapped

The Tibetan Freedom Concert scheduled in London September 15 has been cancelled because of "unexpected scheduling complications and logistical issues," according to the Milarepa Fund, the event's organizers.

The concert was to feature Milarepa Fund founders the Beastie Boys, Joe Strummer, Pulp and Morcheeba. A complete lineup was never announced.

In a post on www.tibetanfreedomconcert.com, the Milarepa Fund said, "We will take this time to continue our political work and to transfer the energy generated in the planning of the London event to an alternative event to be announced at a later date."
