Enrique Iglesias has been forced to cancel several concerts in eastern Europe after reports of a scam by promoters.

The Hero hitmaker was due to perform in Croatia, Latvia, and Belarus in December, but the gigs have been abruptly pulled.

A statement posted on the website of Latvian agency Bilesu Serviss claims Iglesias' reps at the Creative Arts Agency cancelled the shows after promoters failed to fulfil their side of an agreement to stage the gigs.

"Sadly and regrettably, after much careful consideration, and exhausting all possible alternatives, we have been forced to cancel the upcoming shows in Zagreb, Riga, and Minsk," their explanation reads.

"ArtBG, the concert tour promoter, producer, and event organizer, have not complied nor fulfilled their contractual obligations with the venues and all production elements for these three events. All of this makes it impossible to put on the show that our fans deserve. Safety for our fans and crew is paramount and we cannot guarantee this for everyone without the promoter fulfilling their obligations."

According to the music industry website Pollstar, a promoter claiming to represent ArtBG has scammed fans out of their money by promoting the gigs without paying either Enrique and his team or venue operators. Links to buy tickets on ArtBG's website are down.

In the statement to Bilesu Serviss, Enrique's team promised that they and those who worked on the tour dates are "devoted to make sure the responsible party, ArtBG, are held responsible for their actions."

They also pledged to book new dates in similar locations to the cancelled concerts soon.

A Bryan Adams concert in Athens, Greece, that was also promoted by ArtBG, went ahead as planned on Thursday.

Slipknot's Corey Taylor says his new solo album will feature "huge, world-changing guitar songs"

Slipknot's Corey Taylor says his new solo album will feature "huge, world-changing guitar songs"

"I've got 26 songs written, and I'm not done yet."

Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor has spoken about a new solo album he’s working on, claiming he’s already written 26 songs for the “rock meets so many different things” record.

Speaking to WhatCulture Music in a new interview, the singer also talked about his involvement with TV show The Boys, Slipknot’s last album, and potential future Knotfest events.

He then went on to discuss his recent live solo shows, before giving some clues as to how his next solo album might sound. Watch the full interview below, with Taylor discussing the “potential new solo run” around the 17:10 mark.

“It’s definitely going to be rock-based, but it’s going to be rock meets so many different things,” Taylor told the interviewer. “There will be harder-edged stuff, but there also will be big, expansive, huge, world-changing guitar songs that you’re going to want to sing along to.

“That’s just who I am, and I’m not going to fight who I am. I’ve got 26 songs written, and I’m not done yet.”

Yesterday (November 18), Taylor’s Slipknot bandmate Sid Wilson announced that he’s also releasing a new solo album. Making the announcement via Instagram, Wilson said his new album will arrive next month on December 13.

The Slipknot turntablist also revealed that his album features a series of special guests including Killah Priest, DJ Q-Bert and guitarist Bizzythowed.

Wilson’s latest offering is part of a trilogy of album releases, the first of which was released in August 2018.

The Who presented with the founding stone on the Music Walk of Fame

The 'My Generation' legends are the first act to be honoured with the special award at the site of the new monument in Camden Town, London.



Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend were presented with the honour by Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie, with fans and friends watching including the likes of Suggs and Jazzie B.

The Who said: "We are honoured to be the first band with a stone on the Music Walk Of Fame.

"Camden has always been vital to London's thriving music scene and is, as we all know, a world-renowned hub for the arts.

"As Londoners, it's very surreal to be immortalised in stone on Camden High Street, and it's quite something to know that people can pop by and see us anytime, albeit virtually!"

The 'founding stone' itself will act at a guide to the unfolding route of the walk, with big names - from artists and creatures to executives and the media - set to be recognised at the global attraction.

Over the course of each year, up to 20 stones will be laid and marked with special celebrations, with AR technology also used to turn the streets into a museum.

The Music Walk of Fame founder Lee Bennett added: "What a great day for music, fans, the world, London, and Camden. To cap it off by having one of the greatest bands of all time, I'm thrilled to bits."

Reflecting on the honour, Roger heaped praise on the British music industry as a whole.

He said: "We're proud of the British music business achievements, and to have it in Camden - London's centre of music, especially in the '60s and '70s - it's just an honour, it's great."

Bandmate Pete added: "We're really pleased to get this - not just because we're the first, if we weren't the first it would've been just as wonderful.

"As Roger said, it's an honour. And I think also what Roger says about British music is true. We still are leading the field in so many areas."
