Due to ticket demand, Adele's summer tour ditches the Wiltern for the Hollywood Palladium
In support of her acclaimed sophomore album, “21,” released stateside Tuesday, the 22-year-old’s trek kicks off in Washington, D.C., on May 12 and ends June 20 in Nashville.
“21” has hit No. 1 in a handful of countries, including the U.K., Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Switzerland, Austria and Belgium. Adele has become the first living artist since the Beatles in 1964 to have two titles simultaneously in the top five of both the U.K. singles and album charts, as "21" (which The Times gave three out of four stars) started a fourth week at No. 1; its predecessor, “19,” made the charts as well.
The album’s first single, “Rolling in the Deep,” is enjoying a nice wave of buzz and currently sits in the top spot on VH1’s “Top 20 Countdown.”
A limited number of additional tickets will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation and Ticketmaster.
All tickets previously purchased for the Wiltern show will still be honored.
