Laryngitis Forces Adele to Postpone Seattle, Portland, Vancouver Shows
The British singer Adele, who was scheduled to perform on June 1 at Paramount Theatre in Seattle, has had to postpone her sold out concert because of laryngitis.
The key word in the Columbia Records press release that announced the cancellation is postpone. There is no word yet on whether existing tickets will be able to used by current ticket holders to attend a rescheduled concert.
The press release states that Adele, who currently has the No. 1 U.S. single and album, has had to postpone five dates from her sold-out North American tour because of laryngitis. Last Thursday, Adele was diagnosed in Minneapolis, MN. Immediate postponement and rest was ordered by doctors of her engagement that night at First Avenue (which has a rescheduled date of June 22). On Saturday, Adele performed at Ogden Theater in Denver, CO. However, it proved to be too early of a return. At the last minute, Adele’s show at the Depot in Salt Lake City, UT last Sunday night was postponed after her illness became worse. The Grammy award winning singer also had to postpone shows for May 31 at Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver, BC, on June 1 at Paramount Theatre in Seattle, WA and on June 3 a the Crystal Ballroom in Portland, OR. The tour will pick up again on June 4 in San Francisco, CA at Greek Theatre Berkeley.
