The Vancouver Province has more details on last night’s cancelled ‘Justified and Stripped’ tour stop in Vancouver, BC, as both sides seem to be pointing the finger at each other. HOB’s Paul Haagenson said, “The logistics of getting 16 trucks cleared is part of the factoring in on the timing of the show. It’s a 10-hour show to put up and you can’t make it happen if the trucks aren’t all there when they need to be.” Janis Fergusson, of Citizenship and Immigration, said the promoters should have allowed for delays, calling the 2-1/2-hour wait to clear 16 semis through immigration nothing out of the ordinary.
June 12, 2003 – Tony Hicks of the Contra Costa Times reviewed the Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera concert on Friday (June 6) at the Oakland Arena. Hicks said Aguilera “lacked tangible direction on stage” and “she seemed intent on pushing attention away from her voice and toward her sexuality.” As for Timberlake, Hicks says the *NSYNC star show “was a far cry from the spectacle of his boy band days.”
