Linda Ronstadt kicked out of the Aladdin
Las Vegas Review-Journal |

"In a bizarre performance notable for its bridge-burning comments, [Linda Ronstadt] inflamed more than her Aladdin audience on Saturday by taking potshots at Las Vegas and dedicating 'Desperado' to Fahrenheit 9/11 filmmaker Michael Moore. When her show was over, the Aladdin had her checked out of her room and escorted off the premises. Many walked out during the show, one concertgoer tossed a cocktail on her poster, others defaced her posters and the box office was 'a mob scene' of people seeking refunds, according to an Aladdin spokeswoman. 'It's amazing how ugly it got,' said Tyri Squyres, director of public relations... In an interview with the R-J's Mike Weatherford before the show, Ronstadt said with a laugh: 'I keep hoping that if I'm annoying enough to them, they won't hire me back.'"
