Madonna scraps documentary screening at Glastonbury

Posted by Sylar On Tuesday, June 10, 2008
Madonna has scrapped plans for the UK premiere of her documentary I Am Because We Are to be held at a summer music festival, after tickets for the event failed to sell.

The Holiday hitmaker was reportedly planning to screen her latest documentary, which focuses on the plight of Malawian children, at Glastonbury festival later this month.

However, the event has struggled to shift tickets, with rapper Shawn 'Jay-Z' Carter's headlining slot at the event being blamed for a decrease in demand, as the festival usually focuses on a rock-orientated line-up.

According to the Mail On Sunday newspaper, the Queen of Pop wanted to follow the screening with a possible question and answer session with festivalgoers, but has been put off by the lack of interest in this year's event.

A source tells the publication, "Madonna hoped the film could be shown on the Saturday and there was talk of a question and answer session.

"But poor ticket sales for the festival put her off. After talks with the organisers it was decided the festival was not the right venue to showcase the film."
