After canceling her North American tour earlier this month due to laryngitis, [artist id="2476941"]Adele[/artist] has just announced the rescheduled dates for the trek. She will resume performing beginning on August 9 in Vancouver.
After the stop in Canada, the tour circles back around to missed tour dates on the West Coast and in the Midwest, wrapping up on August 24. Adele is also set to add six more dates to the tour, stopping in Las Vegas; Atlantic City, New Jersey; Durham, North Carolina; Orlando, Florida; Miami; and Spring, Texas from October 7 through October 21.
Despite the health setback, Adele’s album 21 has been bouncing around the top of the charts for more than three months now. Atop the charts for 10 of the 17 weeks it’s been out, this week it lands at #3, falling behind Bad Meets Evil ‘s (better known as Eminem and Royce Da 5’9”) Hell: The Sequel as well as 11-year-old “America’s Got Talent” soprano opera singer Jackie Evancho’s Dream With Me.
So, why is Adele so unstoppable this year? “It shows the power … of her fanbase. You’ve got a song that’s performing very, very well, still being discovered by new people every week,” Nielsen SoundScan’s senior vice president of analytics Dave Bakula told MTV News. “You’ve got an artist here who wasn’t a household name prior to this record coming out, so you do still have that discovery process going on with her.
“What it really goes to show is the fact that there still are that many people discovering the album every week,” he added. “I think it shows a lot about the latent demand that is out there for great music.”
