Adele Postpones Concert Dates Due to Illness

Put OUT the CIGGIE, Girl! [Photo: OUT Magazine]

Well crap.  My husband and I have tickets to see Adele tomorrow night.  Seems she is still sick with laryngitis.

The Columbia Records press release states:

“British singer Adele, currently with the #1 album and single in the U.S., has been forced to postpone 5 dates on her current sold-out tour of North America due to laryngitis. The singer was diagnosed last Thursday in Minneapolis, MN, where doctors ordered immediate rest and postponement of that night’s engagement at First Avenue (rescheduled for June 22nd). Adele performed on Saturday evening in Denver, CO (Ogden Theater) which proved too early a return to the stage. Adele’s show last Sunday evening in Salt Lake City, UT (The Depot) was postponed last minute when her illness worsened. The Grammy-winning vocalist is also forced to postpone shows in Vancouver, BC (Orpheum Theatre) on May 31, Seattle, WA (Paramount Theatre) on June 1 and Portland, OR (Crystal Ballroom) on June 3. The tour will resume on June 4 (Greek Theatre Berkeley) in San Francisco, CA.”

Man, this is the second time we’ve had tickets to an amazing show that has been canceled due to an illness.  The last time it happened we were waiting outside the very same venue, The Paramount Theatre, and it was announced that Shirley Manson was sick.  The Garbage concert was never re-scheduled, either.

Fingers crossed Adele feels better and RESCHEDULES!!

Christopher Meloni Leaving ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’

Christopher Meloni - SVU will not be the same...


In more upsetting television news, one of the main actors, and rock of the show let’s be real here, is leaving Law & Order: SVU. Actor Chris Meloni has decided to leave the crime drama, even though he was still in talks to reprise his role as Elliott Stabler for the 13th season. He had been with the show since it launched in 1999. Franchise creator Dick Wolf is said to be looking for a big name to replace him and star opposite Mariska Hargitay.

Talks between the actor and the studios broke down Tuesday, but contract negotiations worked out well for Hargitay will stay on the show but in a limited role, her character will get a promotion. Rumor has it that, who made a  guest appearance during the 12th season, could possibly join the show.

No sir, I don’t like it. Benson and Stabler are THE SHOW. The 12th season finale ended with (SPOILER) Stabler shooting a girl who decided to get revenge on the men who killed her mother. It was a good cliffhanger, what would happen to Stabler now? I just can’t imagine Benson being a partner with anyone else. There were many times when the two were separated, due to Mariska’s real life pregnancy or Stabler being off duty, and had to work with other cops but that was only temporary.

I wish Chris the best but won’t be the same without him.
