The Volcanic Ash Cloud and the Entertainment Industry
Aside from the economic trouble that airline companies would be facing due to the flight ban currently in effect all over Europe, another industry is hurling from cancelled schedule and itineraries.
The stars of the entertainment industry are not exempted from the effect of the “natural” event as they are among those currently stranded thousands of people in airports.
Miley Cyrus will no longer be able to attend the European premiere of her film The Last Song scheduled Tuesday, April 20.
Usher will not be able to go to London this week to promote his latest album Raymond v Raymond.
A press conference in London by Michael Flatley, where he will announce his latest project, will also no longer push through.
Iron Man 2‘s world premiere in London has been transferred to Los Angeles already. Fans will no longer be able to see Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johannson and Mickey Rourke.
Britain’s own Status Quo band is stuck in Moscow and is expecting that their tour in Scotland on May 1 will push through.
“We’ve enjoyed spending extra time in Moscow but, after all we’ve been through over the years, I never thought that our touring schedule would be threatened by a volcano,” Status Quo member and singer Francis Rossi said.
