Courtney Love show canceled

By The Bakersfield Californian

A concert by alternative rock provocateur and tabloid favorite Courtney Love scheduled for Aug. 24 at the Fox Theater has been canceled, according to Kelsey Barrie, the downtown venue's general manager.

"I have not received the reason from the artist reps at this point, but the show is not going to happen," Barrie wrote in an email to The Californian.

Ticket refunds will be processed automatically through Vallitix for all credit card purchases, Barrie said. Cash sales will be refunded starting Tuesday morning at the theater's box office, at 2001 H St.

Love, the widow of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, is currently on tour in an effort to jump-start her music career, which has faltered in recent years after some notable successes in the 1990s with her former band, Hole. The singer expects to release a new solo album and memoir at the end of the year.
