Post #194: Adele - "Rolling In The Deep" and "Hometown Glory"

Post #194:  Last week, the fans of Adele with tickets to her May 26th sold out show at First Avenue got some sad news, when she had to cancel the performance due to laryngitis.

The list of disappointed fans grew yesterday when a week after canceling the Minneapolis show, she ended up canceling her entire North American Tour based on advice from her doctor.

I'm sure her fans won't hold this against her as it seems they absolutely love her.

It is quite impressive how quickly she has gained popularity, especially when you consider how it all started:  She posted a 3 song demo on Myspace, which received attention from XL Recordings whom would ultimately sign her.

Earlier this year, she released her second album, 21, which debuted at #1, and includes the song "Rolling in the Deep".

Prior to that, in 2008, she released 19, which is where you will find "Hometown Glory".

It debuted at #56.

She sure has come a long way.  And I'm sure the disappointed fans think she is well worth the wait.
