ISTANBUL, TURKEY Monday Jun.25.2007 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- Billboard.com reports that the Istanbul leg of Live Earth has been cancelled.

Organizers said the reasons for the cancellation included failure to receive both governmental and corporate support. A Live Earth spokesman said in a statement, "The Turkey show has been restructured and changed because of unforeseen logistical problems in Istanbul.

It also may have had something to do with the fact that no tickets had been sold to the event, which was set to take place on July 7th.

In the meantime, Shakira and Enrique Iglesias have been added to the Live Earth Hamburg bill, which will also feature Snoop Dogg, Chris Cornell, Katie Melua, Mana and Sasha.
