Brightman cancels Everett gig, to perform in Seattle instead

Soprano Sarah Brightman would like fans to be familiar with her music before attending one of her concerts.

That’s why her scheduled appearance at Comcast Arena on March 22 was canceled and rescheduled for later in the year at the Paramount Theater in Seattle.

Brightman’s anticipated 11th studio album, “Dreamchaser,” is being released in North America in April. Because of that album’s release date, the North American tour dates have been moved to fall 2013.

Brightman begins her “Dreamchaser” worldwide tour next summer.

Brightman will not appear at Comcast Arena but instead perform Oct. 26 at the Paramount.

Comcast is providing refunds to ticketholders. For more information on how to obtain a refund, go to www.comcastarenaeverett.com.

In a prepared statement, Brightman said she regretted any inconvenience for ticketholders but said, “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.”
