Fans of RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Adore Delano were disappointed to learn that the singer’s appearances for her “Adore Tour” were canceled in late October, just days ahead of her appearances at Southern Nights Tampa and Southern Nights Orlando.

Pardon Moi French, the event promoter presenting “The Adore Tour,” announced its cancellation just one day ahead of the Orlando stop and two before the scheduled show in Tampa. It had previously touted the tour, which would feature new music form the artist’s third studio album Whatever as “an incredible concert, featuring opening acts from some of your favorite entertainers in your city along with a 30+ minute concert.”

Southern Nights advised eager concertgoers of the cancellation, sharing a message from Pardon Moi French directly. “Valued Customer,” they wrote, “thank you so much for the support & enthusiasm that you’ve shown for The Adore Tour!”

The promoter cited “unforeseen circumstances” but noted “the cancelation is in no way the fault of Adore Delano’s. She is in great health & we wish her & her team nothing but the best. Each local venue has been a great partner. We’re very fortunate to be working with each of them & look forward to future events.”

Delano wasn’t quite as vague with disappointed fans, which were quick to point out that the promoters likely hadn’t paid her. “Don’t worry,” Adore shared via social media, “most of the cities cancelled are being picked up again next year by a real promoter.”

You can read her official statement, which she released on Facebook and Instagram, below.
