U2 Fans Scammed!
Some European U2 fans who were hoping to take in a U2 show in Amsterdam have been scammed! According to nme.com, a number of U2 fans forked over a £199 fee to website LatestEvents.com for tickets, travel and accommodation to a U2 show in Amsterdam that didn’t exist. Since the scam has emerged, Total Entertainment Ltd., which is the firm that the website is part of has now decided to subtract £17.50 (that’s about $40 Cdn.) from each package sold for their "insurance fees." Word of the scam has reached U2’s camp and John Giddings, the band’s global manager says he feels, “severe action should be taken against those responsible.” Giddings told The Daily Mirror that a show had been considered at one point, but that was as far as it went. In other U2 news, a U2 performance that will take place at Slaine Castle in Dublin, Ireland will be broadcast across North America later this year in a primetime concert special on a U.S. network.

Fred Durst’s Skate G-G-Generation
Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst is rollin’ into the directors chair yet again. According to reuters.com, Durst will be shooting a movie this summer about the origins of the skateboarding revolution called, ‘Lords of Dogtown.’ Filming will appropriately take place in Venice, California, after Durst finishes up work on his other movie called ‘Runts.’ The Limp-leader is not a rookie in the directing game, as he has already directed over 20 music videos for his own group, as well as others including Puddle of Mudd and Staind. Durst is also researching music for the film and is expected to be very involved in the score. The movie’s producer, David Fincher, said Durst was the only option for director. He said ‘Lords of Dogtown’ is “about youth and energy and anger and fulfillment. How could one not think of Fred Durst?”
