Sarah Brightman pushes "Dreamchaser" to the fall
Classical crossover songstress Sarah Brightman has postponed her impending North American run, pushing it back nearly nine months due to the delayed release of "Dreamchaser."
Originally slated to kick-off a North American trek in late January, now the English performer will begin the stateside leg Sept. 13 in Hamilton, Ontario. The 33-city schedule spans nearly two months, wrapping up Nov. 2 in Anaheim, CA.
Tickets for most performances are on sale now at Brightman's website.
"Dreamchaser," Brightman's 11th studio effort, was due in stores Jan. 22, but has been delayed until April.
"Whilst I regret any inconvenience that this rescheduling might have occasioned for those people who have already bought tickets, the restructuring of my worldwide album release plan made it inevitable," Brightman said in a statement posted at her website. "Clearly a concert is always more enjoyable if there is familiarity with the music being performed and given how important this new 'Dreamchaser' album is to me, I am keen for those attending my shows to hear it prior to the performance."
Tickets for the rescheduled dates will be honored, while several cities have been canceled entirely, including Providence, R.I.; Upper Darby, PA; Austin, TX; Portland, OR; Sacramento, CA; and San Diego. Refunds for those cancellations are available at the point of purchase.
