(MONDAY, NOVEMBER 13) Aylesbury rock superstar John Otway has had to cancel his World Concert Tour. Fans and members of the public were invited to join John and his Big Band for a once in a lifetime chance to travel around the world this month.
But due to complications in the itinerary the tour fell short of around 100,000 which left John no option other than to cancel.
He launched an ambitious plan to charter the best aircraft in the world, the Airbus 340, and play at the most prestigious venues, amongst them the Carnegie Hall and Sydney Opera House.
To make sure he had an audience, he came up with an idea never tried before by any rock musician on a world tour - he would take them with him!
Sufficient fans paid deposits for the scheme to get going and the all-important plane to be secured for around 1million, and over half the seats had already sold.
