More Adele tickets — a couple hundred — went on sale this afternoon for tonigh's concert at Xcel Energy Center. Again.

There have been more occasions of additional tickets released than there were cancellations of this show. Remember, this gig was set for May 26 at First Avenue and she cancelled at the 11th hour when she discovered at soundcheck that her voice was gone. Laryngitis was the diagnosis and her rescheduled First Ave gig also got cancelled.

Now Adele, the biggest selling artist in the world in 2011 with the album "21," is playing the bowl end of the X. That means about 10,000 seats, compared to about 1,500 at First Avenue.

If you still have First Avenue tickets to exchange, you must do so by 7:30 p.m.

It's worthwhile to arrive on time to catch opening act Wanda Jackson, the queen of rockabilly. The 73-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is not only a favorite of Adele’s but she’s a live wire who is a little bit country, a little bit rock ‘n’ roll and all charmer.
