Bjork drops out of Radiohead tour
                              By JOHN SAKAMOTO Monday, March 2, 1998

                         Bjork has pulled out of her co-headlining dates with Radiohead,
                      including shows planned for both Montreal and Toronto this
                      spring, Elektra Records has announced.
                       The sterling double-bill has been scuttled due to "unforeseen
                      production issues", Bjork's label said in a statement.
                       A report this morning in Billboard magazine's online site said that
                      it would have been impossible for Bjork's stage set to be
                      dismantled in time to put up Radiohead's set-up.
                       "Bjork and Radiohead wanted to play some East Coast dates
                      together because of the mutual respect and empathy they have
                      for each other," a spokesperson for Bjork said.
                       "Both artists are very open to doing something in the future."
                       Bjork's place on the Radiohead bill in Toronto and Montreal will
                      be taken by Spiritualized, who are already slated to open the
                      band's other Canadian dates, in Vancouver and Calgary.
                       Tickets for the Radiohead/Spiritualized show at Maple Leaf
                      Gardens in Toronto will go on sale this Saturday morning at 10.
                      The prices are $25.50, $27.50, and $32.50 plus service charge.
                       The random-wristband policy -- in which buyers are given a
                      randomly numbered wristband to determine the order in which
                      they can get tickets out of the system -- is in effect now.
                      Wristbands are available at TicketMaster outlets.
