Melissa Auf der Maur Cancels Concert Due to Volcanic Ash

April 17, 2010 (4:59 am) GMT
The eruption of Iceland's Mount Eyjafjallajokull earlier this week has resulted in several musicians being denied flight to Europe.

Rocker Melissa Auf der Maur has been forced to scrap her weekend concert in London - because the volcanic dust cloud over Europe has grounded flights across the continent.

Almost all air services in Europe have been canceled because of volcanic ash floating in the skies above following the eruption of Iceland's Mount Eyjafjallajokull on Wednesday, April 14. As a result, Auf Der Maur has been left stranded in Helsinki, Finland and she is now looking to reschedule Saturday's London gig.

The former rocker is not the only artist whose tour plans have been thrown into disarray due to the volcanic ash - pop star has had to cancel his show in Lisbon, Portugal on Friday, April 16, while British rockers The Cribs, Los Campesinos! and Frightened Rabbit have also had to pull out of California's Coachella music festival this weekend.
