Bill Cosby’s Arizona show canceled amid scandal

NEW YORK (AP) – Bill Cosby’s busy upcoming concert tour just got a little less busy.

His appearance at Tuscon’s Desert Diamond Casino has been canceled. No reason was given by the casino for the canceled date, which had been scheduled for Feb. 15.

In the past week, numerous allegations of sexual abuse by Cosby from a number of women have led to canceled interviews and NBC and Netflix projects. “The Cosby Show” also was pulled off the air on TV Land. Cosby issued a statement Sunday discrediting decades-old accusations and his attorney has denied four of the allegations.

Thursday night he appeared in Bahamas at a benefit for a women’s service organization.

Including an appearance in Melbourne, Florida tonight, Cosby is slated to perform at least 36 shows between now and May 2015.
