Adele's is cancelling the rest of her U.S. tour -- including her already-reschduled date at First Avenue -- due to the laryingitis that originally put the kibosh on her Minneapolis show last week. It looks as if she will reschedule our show yet again, though.
First Avenue general manager Nate Kranz just confirmed minutes ago that the show was off with Adele's agent. According to Kranz, the rep said "there is a high likelihood the shows will be rescheduled," possibly later this summer or in the fall. Those details are still being worked out.
In the meantime: "HOLD ON TO YOUR TICKET!" Kranz firmly advised.
After the original May 26 postponement at First Ave, Adele struggled through a show in Denver and then pulled the plug on five more concerts. While resting in Los Angeles, according to the press release, the 23-year-old singer went to an "otolaryngology specialist" (fancier term for an ear/nose//throat doc) who reportedly told her to "take the next few weeks to recover with absolute voice rest." She was to play nine other shows in addition to the rescheduled First Ave date.
"I'm really frustrated," Adele is quoted in the release. "I was hoping with a week's rest I'd be better to sing again straight away. However there is absolutely nothing I can do but take the doctor’s advice and rest some more. I'm so sorry. See you soon, love Adele."
