Christina Scraps Spring Tour

Throat woes derail U.S. outing

April 30, 2004 12:00 AM ET
Strained vocal chords have forced Christina Aguilera to cancel her summer tour.

The twenty-eight-city trek was scheduled to launch May 13th in Seattle, but Aguilera's doctors urged her to take the summer off to give her voice time to recover. "I am extremely disappointed," Aguilera said. "I was looking forward to being on the road again and spending time with my fans."

Aguilera had set up the dates in continued support of her 2002 release Stripped. Last year, she and Justin Timberlake co-headlined the successful Justified and Stripped Tour. Rapper Chingy had been enlisted for this summer.

Refunds will be offered at the point of purchase.

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
