Various students from Indonesia saw the chairmanâs idea as a very perfect one and there are some who agreed to support it. âOkay, Iâm inâ is one comment made by a student. Students were going to sing in the joint as well with all the things that they can manage to use in the competition.

The latest in the location moves followed the news that the owners of the stadium Sting was due to perform in were allegedly planning to uproot 180 trees so a mall and parking lots could be built in time for the concert.
Sting learnt that the mastermind of the activity, Karlo Marko Altomonte, wrote to his foundation stating that the removal of the trees would additionally result in greater air population and risks of landslides and flooding near school areas. This warning played a huge part in stingâs decision to relocate the concert and delaying the tour schedule. The concert will now take place in the SM mall, a venue in the Asia Arena near Quezon City in the Smart Araneta Coliseum which is owned by the Phillipines richest man – Henry Sy.
In Stings petition, the environmentalists said it is not fair that Sting continues to save rainforests while at the same time the SM is raping the environment. The Rainforest Foundation was established by Sting and his wife back 1989 with the aim of protecting tropical rain forests and residents local to these precious areas. In its statement, the arena stated that, stopping the sting concert at the SM MOA arena has become like a court battle of saving trees from a corporate giantâs reputation.

However, this case was presented to the court which stopped the mall expansion temporarily in city of Baguio. Letâs just hope that sting succeeds in this battle.

The show, scheduled for 20th October took a huge hit when doctors put Madonna on complete vocal rest, which means that many of her fans, having waited for ages for this concert, had to wait a little longer to see the show.

Cancellation was unavoidable, and regardless of how bad it looked on the P.R score card, there was really nothing else to do.
The âmaterial girlâ has reiterated how sorry she is for any inconvenience to the fans, and has directed the refunding of tickets at the point of purchase, with online tickets also being directly refunded. Her fans have been very understanding, wishing her a quick recovery and a return to the stage as soon as possible. They are going to have to wait a while before that happens, but despite all the controversy surrounding her, Madonna is still considered on a short list of some of the most consistent artists, with many hits to her name.
Madonna issued a statement to confirm her âvocal restâ status, and also insisted on how regretful she felt for any inconveniences that she may have caused her fans.
The all time pop Queen has never been shy of controversy, the latest of which; saw her wave a gun on stage when singing âGang Bangâ. This made her the object of scrutiny, as she was branded as âinsensitiveâ coming shortly after the Aurora shooting at a midnight showing of The Dark Night Rises. Her rep insisted that the scene was the epitome of the stage act, and that removing it would make the show much less of a spectacle.
