Bad news for those of you (read: us) who were pumped for rolling in the deep with the chart-dominating British R&B singer Adele this Saturday night at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley: Because of illness, the sold-out show, along with the remaining North American dates of her tour, have been canceled.

Adele previously canceled five shows under doctors' orders after she was diagnosed with laryngitis. She had been hoping to resume the tour with this Saturday's show in Berkeley, according to a statement from her publicist. But an ear, nose, and throat specialist in Los Angeles told her she must take several weeks off to completely rest her voice.

"I'm really frustrated," Adele said in the statement. "I was hoping with a week's rest I'd be better to sing again straight away. However there is absolutely nothing I can do but take the doctor's advice and rest some more. I'm so sorry. See you soon, love Adele."

Originally scheduled for the Warfield, Adele's show was moved to the Greek Theatre after her sophomore album, 21, proved a blockbuster. So far it has spent a total of nine weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, helping to sell out all of her North American shows.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
