Yeah Yeah Yeahs to Fill in for Beastie Boys at Lollapalooza

Recent news regarding Beastie Boy Adam Yauch's cancerous tumor has left Yauch's bandmates, fans and fellow musicians shaken. The trio was forced to delay the release of its forthcoming album, Hot Sauce Committee, and cancel its upcoming tour dates. Among these dates was a headlining slot at this year's Lollapalooza. But ticket holders can look forward to a performance from a different trio instead: Yeah Yeah Yeahs have agreed to fill in for the Beasties, adding the festival to their international tour schedule.
