Rod Stewart, Stevie Nicks Cancel Opening Night of Joint Tour

J Records/RCA Music Group(SUNRISE, Fla.) -- The opening night of the Rod Stewart/Stevie Nicks joint Heart & Soul tour was canceled this past Sunday night due to illness.

It seems Stewart came down with the flu, so the show, which was scheduled to take place in Sunrise, Florida at the BankAtlantic Center, had to be scrapped.  According to the venue's website, refunds are available at the point of purchase.

Pollstar.com reports that the tour will now begin on March 23 in Tampa, Florida.

Ke$ha Postpones Japanese Tour, but Show Goes On for Ne-Yo

Carlos R. Alvarez/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Following the disaster in Japan, Ke$ha has canceled her upcoming tour of that country.  Billboard reports that in a statement, the singer said, "I genuinely don't think right now would be appropriate timing for me to perform in Japan, given the content and spirit of my show, which is all about feeling exuberant, rowdy and wild."  She added that she'll return to the country "when we are all ready to dance and Get $leazy together again."  Ke$ha, who also pledged to "do everything I can to help relief efforts," will start a U.S. tour leg April 1 in Clarion, Pennsylvania.

However, Ne-Yo decided not to let the recent events in Japan stop him from performing there.  Over the weekend, he gave a concert in the city of Nagoya, and tweeted that he was setting up donation boxes in the venue to help those in need.  He also sold special wristbands, the proceeds from which will go to the victims of the earthquake and tsunami.  The singer will do the same at his show Tuesday in Yokohama and Thursday in Tokyo.  He's calling his campaign "Spread Love Through Music."

Miley Cyrus Planning International Tour; Returns to Twitter

PRNewsFoto/MTV Networks International(LOS ANGELES) -- Miley Cyrus has announced the first two dates of what will be a full-scale international tour, according to E! Online.  She'll perform April 29 in Ecuador, and May 1 in Lima, Peru, with more dates to follow.  According to E!, there are no immediate plans for Miley to perform in the United States.  A source told E!, "Miley has a huge fanbase worldwide.  She's pumped that her schedule has opened up and allowed her to perform for fans abroad."

Meanwhile, Miley, who famously quit Twitter back in 2009, is back on the social networking service -- kind of.  When she first left, she explained with a final tweet that her boyfriend at the time, Liam Hemsworth, "doesn't have a twitter and he wants ME to delete mine with good reason."  Now, she's using the Twitter account of the production team Rock Mafia, with whom she's been working lately.  Miley wrote on their account, "This is my new way to connect.  When I need to speak out, I will tweet from @Rock_Mafia."  But after sending a series of tweets, she added, "Wanted to make it clear I'M NOT rejoining Twitter. I'm only using it when with [Rock Maifa] writing! Fans are the best way to get inspired."
