Backstreet Boys' Saturday (10/20) show in Chula Vista, Calif., has been canceled, according to Ticketmaster. (Ticketmaster is LiveDaily's parent company.)

The cancellation was made to allow the group to instead perform at Madison Square Garden on Saturday as part of the Concert for New York City benefit.

KISS has dropped out of the United We Stand lineup due to a medical emergency, and event organizers had mistakenly announced Mick Jagger's involvement, reported.

According to the KISS' official website, the band had to cancel its appearance because frontman Paul Stanley is suffering from an ailing hip that needs to be replaced.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that the local club Maritime Hall will cease hosting concerts as of Oct. 31. The Maritime's owner, the Sailors Union of the Pacific, had reportedly tripled the club's rent.

The Chronicle also reported that the owner of the Paradise Lounge, another local club, is in negotiations to sell the place.

Madonna's electronic-tinged hit "Ray of Light" will serve as the soundtrack for Microsoft's ad campaign for its new operating system, Windows XP. The Rolling Stones reportedly received $14 million when Microsoft licensed the band's "Start Me Up" for the Windows 95 campaign.
