Juan Gabriel's North American "Volver 2014" tour dates have either been postponed or canceled due to the singer's ongoing health problems, which began after he was diagnosed with pneumonia earlier this month.
Nearly two weeks after the entertainer's representatives announced the postponement of Gabriel's first California shows, the singer's health continues in "recovery," while online chatter over the situation continues to build as disappointed ticket buyers are either returning to their point of purchase for a refund or trying to get tickets to future shows.
A source familiar with Gabriel's ongoing health problems said that while there is concern at every level for the iconic balladeer, those around the singer remained hopeful that Gabriel will be able to perform starting Sept. 5. He will continue touring in Miami at the American Airlines Arena. Seven other shows will follow immediately after.
Ticket holders for dates in Miami, Newark, San Jose, Denver and Oakland can use their original tickets for a new show. There is no need to obtain a new ticket, according to the singer's representatives. Those who cannot attend a new show date are eligible for a refund at the original point of purchase.
In Los Angeles, the May 1 and 4 Nokia Theatre L.A. Live have been cancelled due to scheduling reasons; fans are also eligible for refunds at the point of purchase. These ticket holders will be e-mailed a link in 7 to 10 business days with an option to buy a limited number of tickets to see one of the rescheduled September concerts.
Gabriel, 64, kicked off the U.S. Leg of his tour on April 3 and 4 with two sold out shows at the Allstate Center in Chicago. His new album, "Mis 40 en Bellas Artes," goes on sale on May 6.
