Stephanie J. Block's April Cadogan Hall Concerts Have Been Rescheduled for August 30th

Stephanie J. Block has released a statement regarding her concerts at Cadogan Hall in London on Sunday 12 April:

"Dear London,


The last few days have been a whirlwind of unexpected events and, sadly, I must reschedule my Sunday, April 12th 2020 concerts. HOWEVER, within those last 48 hours, the producers, Cadogan Hall and I have worked hard to secure another date this season. So hold onto those tickets because I'm comin' for you this summer! Everyone who has purchased seats will be automatically transferred to the corresponding matinee or evening performance for August 30th, 2020.

I recognize that a switch in schedule is inconvenient (and sometimes disappointing) but I am VERY grateful for your understanding and I VERY much look forward to spending the last days of summer in London and seeing you all at Cadogan Hall on Sunday, August 30th, 2020.


Until then, much joy,
SJB"

A statement from the producers, Darren Bell for Club 11 London and Jack Maple and Brian Zeilinger for Take Two Theatricals has also been released:

"Club 11 London and Take Two Theatricals are excited to present Stephanie J. Block in London on Sunday 30 August 2020. We are sorry for the inconvenience of rescheduling the concert on Sunday 12 April but rather than cancel it in its entirety we are really happy that Cadogan Hall and Stephanie have worked with us to move it to August.
