LJUBLJANA — Pop diva Madonna has cancelled her concert in the Slovenian capital Ljubljana on August 20, the organizer of the Sticky and Sweet tour said on Friday.
"Due to unexpected logistic difficulties, Madonna's concert scheduled for August 20 at the Ljubljana hypodrome has been cancelled," Live Nation, the tour organizer for Eastern Europe, said in a statement.
It said that concerts in Munich and Budapest, scheduled for August 18 and 22, respectively, would run as planned.
Slovenian media reported earlier this week that the concert would be cancelled due to poor tickets sales.
News website 24ur reported Thursday that only 7,000 tickets out of 63,000 had been sold so far.
Slovenian music lovers often have to go to neighbouring Italy, Austria and Croatia to see their idols as large tours often skip the small country of two million people for fear of poor ticket sales.
