Sarah Brightman Tour Announces New Cincinnnati Date, 10/2; Moves to Music Hall
The Cincinnati engagement of the Sarah Brightman tour has been rescheduled for Wednesday, October 2, 2013, 7:30 PM at Music Hall (the original concert was scheduled for March 5, 2013 at the Aronoff Center). Sarah Brightman's highly anticipated 11th studio album Dreamchaser will now be released in North America in April 2013. This will coincide with the timing of her International album release plan that will run through Spring 2013. As a consequence, the North American tour dates will be moved to the fall of 2013.
Ticket holders will be contacted the week of December 17 by Cincinnati Arts Association Ticketing Services with information about obtaining comparable seating at Music Hall for the new date or receiving a full refund for their tickets. Customers who have purchased tickets from resale sites, ticket brokers, or ticket exchanges should contact their point of purchase directly.
Reserved Seat Tickets: $134.50 / $94.50 / $74.50. Go to www.CincinnatiArts.org or call the Aronoff Center Ticket Office at 513-621-ARTS (2787).
"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. 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," said Brightman.
Brightman recently released the Dreamchaser track "Angel" and the first single "One Day Like This" off of the album. Both recordings are currently available digitally at various online retailers including iTunes and Amazon.
"Angel" is a collaboration with veteran producer Mike Hedges, who is known for his iconic work with U2, The Cure, and Dido. The album was co-produced by Sally Herbert and mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Amy Winehouse).
"One Day Like This," another collaboration with Mike Hedges and Sally Herbert, is a rendition of British band Elbow' single from their successful fourth album, The Seldom Seen Kid, released in 2008.
The video for "One Day Like This" will be released in January.
In summer of 2013, Brightman will begin her Dreamchaser worldwide tour which will travel to five continents and include over 100 concert dates.
