Adele switches San Francisco Bay-area venues, Morrissey changes a U.K. date, Ravi Shankar postpones L.A. gig, “Outside Lands” makes a significant lineup addition and the “Bamboozle Roadshow” tour has been canceled.
Movin’ On Up
Brit singer-songwriter Adele has upgraded her scheduled June 4 appearance in the San Francisco market. Originally set to play The Warfield in San Francisco, the Brit singer-songwriter is taking the gig outdoors and across the bay to Berkeley’s Greek Theatre.
Because the Greek’s capacity is almost four times that of the Warfield, additional tickets will go on sale Sunday, April 17 at 10 a.m. PDT with reserved priced at $65 and lawn going for $45. Click here for what you need to know.

Not-So-Grim News From Grimsby
Morrissey has tweaked his U.K. tour, switching his June 24 Grimsby, England, show to June 28 at the Grimsby Auditorium.
Those ol’ “unavoidable scheduling issues” are what’s causing the switch, according to the venue’s website. All original tickets will be valid for the new date, and the auditorium apologizes for any inconvenience. Click here for details.

The Ever-Changing Shankar Date
Someday Ravi Shankar will play the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. The sitar master was originally scheduled to perform at the Los Angeles venue on October 20, 2010, but health issues forced him to move it to April 19.
Now the date has been moved again, this time because one of his ensemble members is having “visa complications.” The concert has now been pushed back to late September.
“To give you the best possible performance, I feel the only option is to postpone our concert,” Shankar said in a statement announcing the postponement. “I am honored to be performing at Walt Disney Concert Hall, one of the great concert halls of the world. I hope you will join me on Sept. 29, 2011.”
Tickets for the original Oct. 20 show as well as the April 19 performance will be honored on the new date. For more information, visit LAPhil.com.

Shins Added To Outside Lands
The lineup for the fourth annual “Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival” was announced only a few days ago and already the festival has a new major addition to its lineup – The Shins.
The appearance marks the first Shins public performance since 2009.
Acts appearing at this year’s event include Muse, Phish, Arcade Fire, The Black Keys, Deadmau5, MGMT, Beirut, Girl Talk and The Decemberists.
Tickets for Outside Lands went on sale today. Although the festival quickly sold out of its allotment of “Eager Beaver 3-Day Tickets” priced at $149.50, there are still plenty of other deals available if you act quickly. Visit SFOutsideLands.com for more information.
“No Bamboozle Road Show” This Year
The “Bamboozle Roadshow” featuring Chiddy Bang with Dev, Ninjasonik and Pusha T has been canceled. The tour was scheduled to begin May 4 at Boston’s House Of Blues.
The cancellation does not affect the annual “Bamboozle Festival” taking place in E. Rutherford, N.J., at New Meadowlands Stadium April 29-May 1.
The tour’s press reps issued a statement today, blaming the cancellation on “unforseen routing and lineup issues.” Refunds are available at points of purchase. Visit the tour’s website for more information.
