Sarah Brightman Puts The Dream On Hold

The North American release date for the English soprano’s new album is being pushed back, which has in effect postponed her tour dates in the U.S. and Canada. Originally scheduled to begin in late January, the North American leg of Sarah Brightman’s world tour will now launch in September.

Dreamchaser, which was due out Jan. 22, will now be released in North America sometime in April. In the meantime, you can purchase the track “Angel” and the first single “One Day Like This” via various online retailers including iTunes and Amazon. Look out for the video for “One Day Like This” next month.

Brightman’s world tour in support of Dreamchaser will kick off this summer and include over 100 dates in five continents. The North American leg begins Sept. 13 in Hamilton, Ontario. 

St. Pete Times Forum, Tampa, Fla.

“Whilst I regret any inconvenience that this rescheduling might have occasioned for those people who have already bought tickets, the restructuring of my worldwide album release plan made it inevitable,” Brightman said in a statement. “Clearly a concert is always more enjoyable if there is familiarity with the music being performed and given how important this new Dreamchaser album is to me, I am keen for those attending my shows to hear it prior to the performance. I’m delighted with the new album and very excited about the show that I’ll be presenting in 2013.”

New dates have been announced for the majority of the North American shows. Unfortunately, gigs were not rescheduled in the following cities because of venue availability: Providence, R.I.; Upper Darby, Pa.; Austin, Texas; Portland, Ore.; Sacramento, Calif.; and San Diego. Refunds are available at the point of purchase.

Tickets for the rest of the North American shows will be honored at the rescheduled dates. Fans who can’t make the rescheduled shows can request refunds at the point or purchase.
