Frank Sinatra canceled his June 8 performance in Sweden on Tuesday in response to a decision by the Swedish government to tax his concert earnings because he appeared in South Africa. Swedish organizers said that the notice of cancellation came from Sinatra attorney Milton Rudin. The Swedish Finance Ministry decided April 29 not to exempt Sinatra's show from a special 30% to 42% tax--a tax most foreign performers do not have to pay--because Sinatra is blacklisted by the United Nations for performing in South Africa. Sinatra, 72, who was to start his European tour of about 20 performances with the show in Sweden, also canceled his June 10 appearance in Copenhagen for similar reasons.
