Charles Bradley at Firefly 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)

To all our Chicago friends, we're very sorry to inform you that we have to postpone our show at the Metro tonight [Thursday, May 9], as there's been a death in the family. We've always had an amazing time playing for you, so we hope you understand and we promise that we'll be back as soon as we can.

Tickets will of course be valid at the new Metro date (which will be announced soon), but refunds will also be available at the point of purchase. We'll give you news on the new show as soon as we're able.

Unfortunately, Charles Bradley & the Extraordinaires have had to cancel tonight's performance at Metro due to a death in the family. A new date will be announced shortly, and as seen above, all tickets will be honored. Stay tuned for more details.
