    Los Angeles, CA  (September 25, 2014) - Due to ongoing complications brought on by a severe case of pneumonia, five-time Grammy-winning jazz pianist and singer Diana Krall has been forced to postpone her scheduled album release and U.S. fall tour. Krall’s concert at Walt Disney Concert Hall, originally scheduled for November 11, 2014, has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled.

    Tickets will be refunded using the original payment method. For further details or questions, call 323.850.2000 from 10am – 6pm daily, or visit LAPhil.com.

    Diana Krall’s new studio album “Wallflower” (Verve Records) was due for North American release on October 21, 2014 and the U.S. leg of her “Wallflower World Tour” was to kick off in Phoenix, AZ on November 7, 2014. Krall’s condition has become much more chronic than first anticipated, and she is unable to travel or engage in any promotional or touring activities for at least another 6 weeks to 2 months.

    Krall is extremely disappointed to have to announce this, but also realizes that, upon advice of her doctors, this is the only course of action available to her at this time to ensure a full recovery, stating “I’m deeply saddened that I will have to postpone the release of my new album ‘Wallflower’ and the ‘Wallflower U.S. Fall Tour’ until next year. I’ve been battling a severe case of pneumonia and am under doctor’s orders to rest for the next few months in order to regain my strength and good health. Performing is both a privilege and a joy for me. When I go out on stage I want to be able to give it everything. Taking this time to rest and recuperate will allow me to do that. It is frustrating to be so close to the record release and have to delay but I am very proud of this record and want to be able to give you all my very best when we finally present this music to you. Thank you so much for your understanding.”
