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.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
