João Gilberto's 80th Birthday Tour postponed...

Last June 10, when Gilberto celebrated his 80th Birthday, a tour was announced and originally scheduled to start in September 2011, with dates booked in São Paulo (at Tom Brasil) and Rio de Janeiro (Vivo Rio). But those concerts were cancelled and the tour postponed to November.

'Till yesterday, the following dates were still valid:
November 5 @ Via Funchal (São Paulo)
November 15 @ Teatro Municipal (Rio de Janeiro)
November 19 @ Centro de Convenções Ulysses Guimarães (Brasília)
November 25 @ Teatro do SESI (Porto Alegre)

However, as expected by many, the tour was once again postponed. New concerts will be scheduled for December. Maybe.

João Gilberto's latest (last?) tour happened in 2008, in Brazil. After that occasion, he cancelled tours in Japan, Spain, Italy, his appearance in a Guitar Festival organized by Eric Clapton, and even a sold-out concert at Carnegie Hall in 2010.
