Adele forced to postpone first six dates of her September 2011 UK tour - first date now to be Leicester
With this evening seeing the many par-for-the-course multiple renditions of Adele songs on X Factor (causing Gary Barlow last week to pronounce he was 'sick' of people covering Adele songs on the show), comes the news that the real deal is a bit poorly and will be unable to play the opening two dates of her September UK tour.
A cold and chest infection have meant that the popular award-winning singer has been forced to postpone the opening night (Plymouth Pavilions, tomorrow night) and the Bournemouth BIC gig the following night.
A statement on her official site reads:
It is with regret that due to a severe cold and chest infection, Adele has had to postpone the first two shows of her UK tour in Plymouth on Sunday September 4th and Bournemouth on Monday September 5th 2011.
The shows will be rescheduled at the earliest opportunity and all original tickets will remain valid. Refunds will be available from the point of purchase.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and look forward to seeing you all at the rescheduled shows.
We will of course announce the rescheduled dates as soon as we have the info and let you know if any of the other dates are affected. Face value tickets for the entire tour have of course long sold-out.
Cardiff, Blackpool and Wolverhampton dates also postponed
Still feeling under the weather, Adele has now been forced to postpone her Cardiff (7th September), Blackpool (8th) and Wolverhampton (10th and 11th).
Update: She's back!
Adele's first date of her September tour will now be in Leicester's De Montfort Hall on 13th September, with all other dates expected to be taking place and the rescheduled dates (Plymouth, Bournemouth, Cardiff, Blackpool and Wolverhampton) to be announced.
Rescheduled dates to take place in November
The postponed September gigs will now take place in November, starting in Wolverhampton on 7th November, for back-to-back dates, then Blackpool, Bournemouth, Cardiff and Plymouth. Face value tickets remain sold-out, however...
