SADE SCHEDULING CHANGES17th October, 2011
Scheduling Changes to Australian Tour Dates
Second Sydney Concert Announced for December 10
Change of Venues for the McLaren Vale, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and Perth Concerts
Brisbane Concert Date to Change
Sade are preparing for their first Australian shows in more than 25 years this December, as they commence sold out tours of South America and Europe prior to arriving here.
The concerts continue to draw rave reviews internationally, confirming that Australian fans are in for the show of the year.
However it has become necessary to make several alterations to the Australian tour itinerary.
The scale of the touring production and staging requirements has now increased to the extent that it will not be possible to present the show in the winery venues originally announced.
Therefore the Leconfield Wines, McLaren Vale performance will move indoors to the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. There is no change to the show date, which remains Saturday, December 3. Tickets for the Adelaide Entertainment Centre show will go on general sale at midday on Tuesday October 18.
The Hunter Valley show at Hope Estate will change venues, with ticket holders being offered the opportunity of moving to the Sydney Entertainment Centre on the same date, Saturday December 10. This will be Sade's second and final Sydney show. Tickets for this show will go on general sale at 9am on Monday October 24.
The Rochford Wines, Yarra Valley show is also affected, requiring the relocation of ticket holders to the previously announced Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne show on Friday December 2.
The Perth show has now sold out. With the continuing strong demand for tickets, the show will move to a larger site at the Perth Esplanade, giving an opportunity for all of Sade's Perth fans to attend the concert, and opening up additional reserved seating capacity. There is no change to the show date, which remains Tuesday December 6.
Finally, due to a change in Sade's international touring schedule, it has become necessary to move the Brisbane show date two days earlier to Monday December 12. This will be the final Australian performance.
There are no changes to shows at Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena on December 2 or the Sydney Entertainment Centre on December 9.
Michael Coppel Presents apologize for any disappointment or inconvenience caused by these itinerary changes.
