Adele is a British vocalist who has risen in popularity, both in her native UK and internationally, since the release of her debut record “19.” The album was released in January 2008 in the UK, where it instantly topped album sales charts. Adele’s North American release followed in June that year to lukewarm reception. However, national interest in the young soul singer skyrocketed when she appeared as a musical guest on a fateful episode of skit television show “Saturday Night Live,” which also featured a much-hyped guest appearance by then-Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

Adele made her debut on the U.S./Canada tour circuit in early summer 2008, but cancelled a planned September 2008 tour due to “problems at home.” The British chantreuse returned early in 2009 for a round of winter dates, followed by another block of shows in spring. Her tours of the U.S. and Canada have primarily been booked for medium-sized clubs and theaters.
