MINNEAPOLIS -- Soul singing sensation Adele canceled her sold out show First Avenue Thursday night citing an illness, First Avenue tells KARE 11.
First Avenue said on Twitter "unfortunately tonight's Adele show has been postponed because she is very ill. Stay tuned and we will announce a rescheduled date very soon."
First Ave later tweeted Thursday's "postponed Adele show will now take place on Wednesday June 22nd. All original tickets will be honored."
Tickets for Adele's show sold out in three minutes to 1,500 fans. Tickets were being re-sold online for as much as $900 earlier this week, a clear indicator of how highly anticipated the concert was.
While Adele's star is just one of many on the First Avenue wall, there wasn't one set to be brighter on Thursday night when the popular singer was set to perform at the famed Minneapolis club.
Earlier Thursday, First Avenue General Manager Nate Kranz said the Adele concert "couldn't possibly be a bigger show."
It is widely believed Adele could easily fill a bigger Twin Cities stage which added to the anticipation for the First Avenue concert.
"She is definitely ready for another venue, I was surprised she didn't move the show to a bigger venue, but I'm sure it was Adele's choice. Adele wanted to play First Avenue," Cities 97 Program Director Lauren MacLeash said.
When you ask those in the know in music why this 22-year-old is the hottest ticket in years, the answer is simple.
"She is just that good," MacLeash said.
Adele's sophomore album, "21," has sat atop the U.K. and U.S. charts for weeks.
