The annual LOLLAPALOOZA MUSIC FESTIVAL TOUR has been cancelled following poor ticket sales.

Event organiser and Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell is "heartbroken" about scrapping the concert, which was scheduled to begin in Auburn, Washington on 14 July (04), with dates in New York, Atlanta, Dallas and Toronto, Canada.

Lollapalooza was resurrected last year (03) after a six year hiatus, and this year's gigs were set to feature Morrissey, The Pixies, Wilco, THE Polyphonic Spree and PJ Harvey.

Tour co-founder MARC GEIGER says, "I'm in utter disbelief that a concert of this stature, with the most exciting lineup I've seen in years did not galvanize ticket sales."

Ticket buyers will be entitled to full refunds.
