Lucinda Williams cancels American tour dates
Singer/songwriter Lucinda Williams canceled American tour dates after the recent passing of her mother. A performance was scheduled in Nashville March 9 and another in Columbus March 10. However, on March 8, Williams canceled a sold-out show in Charlotte, N.C. just before the performance was set to start. According to an article in the Charlotte Observer, fans took the news of the cancellation well, even though some had flown in to North Carolina just to be part of the more intimate crowd at the Visulite Theater. According to Williams’ official Web site, fans can expect the tour dates to be rescheduled sometime in August. Williams is a three-time Grammy award winner. Her most recent win was in 2001 for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.
