Courtney Still Singing Despite Legal Woes
Courtney Love, who this week was ordered into rehab following her guilty plea for being under the influence of cocaine and other opiates, will still tour in concert this summer, reports Billboard.
The former Hole singer, 39, will do at least 24 shows and at least one court appearance. The tour kicks off June 18 at the intimate, 750-seat Toad's Place in New Haven, Conn., and will conclude July 23 with a show at the Palladium in Los Angeles.
In between, her June 20 appearance at Buffalo, N.Y.'s Artvoice Street Festival is expected to draw as many as 30,000 fans, while a June 28 gig at New York's outdoor Central Park Summerstage could draw some 5,000 people.
The tour is in support of America's Sweetheart, Love's solo debut album released in February by Virgin Records. The under-achieving album debuted at No. 53 on the Billboard 200 and has sold 86,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Love's Southern California schedule coincides with her July 16 sentencing hearing after Tuesday's guilty plea.
Under the plea deal reached in Los Angeles Superior Court, Love will be spared any jail time and will have the conviction removed from her record if she completes the treatment program, prosecutors told Reuters.
