You can practically hear Atlanta tween hearts breaking. Yes, the Jonas Brothers have canceled the upcoming Atlanta date on their 2010 world tour. :(

The band has released a statement (that could have used at least one more period):

“Jonas Brothers released today an all-new world tour schedule that now includes additional shows in both Latin America and Europe. Due to recent changes in the Jonas Brothers’ schedule and the addition of several international tour markets on their upcoming Live In Concert world tour, the show at Aaron’s Amphitheatre at Lakewood in Atlanta has been removed from the current routing, however the Jonas Brothers remain committed to their fans and will look to return to Atlanta as soon as possible. Tickets for this show will be refunded at point of purchase.”

The show was scheduled for Oct. 14 at  Aaron’s Amphitheatre at Lakewood. For more info on this sad turn of events, check with

Courtney Love paid a rare visit to The Tabernacle Wednesday night as Hole and opener Foxy Shazam performed downtown. The modest crowd waited patiently as she came onstage an hour and a half late.

On March 16, the first Hole single in ten years, and first from Nobody’s Daughter was released. “Skinny Little Bitch” was the most added song on alternative radio and the second most added song on active rock in early March in the United States, debuting at #32 on Billboard’s Alternative Singles Chart

Were you at the show? What do you think of Courtney?
