The attacks on New York and DC yesterday were a world-wide tragedy. The music world responded, much like Hollywood and the sports world, with cancelled events and condolences for the victims.

The entire entertainment industry shut down yesterday, along with much of the world, because of the attacks on both New York and DC. The music world has responded, much like Hollywood and the sports world with cancelled events and condolences for the victims.

1The Latin Grammys were supposed to take place September 11th in Los Angeles, California. The event was cancelled imediately after the attack began on the World Trade Center in New York. Organizers of the event said in a statement Tuesday night, "Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, their families and everyone who has been impacted by these horrific events." No new date has been scheduled.

1Madonna's concert, set to take place September 11th in Los Angeles, was cancelled. The Black Crowes concert at the Greek Theater in LA was also cancelled. Destiny's Child was set to perform in Vancouver, Canada tonight, Wednesday September 12, 2001, but that show has been postponed. The trio was supposed to appear at the Latin Grammys yesterday and are still in LA.

1MTV cancelled regular shows like TRL and picked up coverage of the days events by CBS. VH1 also ignored their regular schedule.

1 Infamous NY-based radio personality Howard Stern forgot his usual shock-jock routine. Stern opted for a serious tone yesterday while he reported continuous updates on the tragedy.

1 Backstreet Boys were closely touched but this tragedy. A member of their Black and Blue World Tour crew, Daniel Lee, was on one of the flights that hit the Trade Center. Also, Brian Littrell, his wife and other members of BSB and their family members were in Boston at the time of the hijackings. Aaron Carter, Nick's little bro, was in NYC with his parents and saw the second plane hit the tower with his own eyes. Nick says, "He is only 13 years old and he has seen something I have never seen."
