Bert Jansch had been battling lung cancer over the past couple of years, and early this morning he lost his battle with the disease. He was 67.

"It is with regret that we announce the removal of Black Eyed Peas from the Michael Forever bill," Chris Hunt, chief executive officer of Global Live Events, told BBC News, "but I look forward to a great night with other earth shattering artists."
