Diana Krall postpones Valentine's Day concert at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater




Every year, Ruth Eckerd Hall usually tries to book a fun Valentine's Day show for all the lovers in Clearwater. Recent V-Day concerts have included Harry Connick Jr., Natalie Cole and Huey Lewis and the News.

This year's headliner was supposed to be jazz siren Diana Krall. But the singer just announced she's postponing all of her Florida dates so that she may collaborate with Paul McCartney on a special project for the Grammys.

Gee, thanks, Di. Suddenly our love is NOT as important as Paul McCartney? We're devastated.

(Coincidentally, Krall's husband, Elvis Costello, also recently backed out of a show at Ruth Eckerd Hall, though that was due to a family emergency. Still no word on a makeup date for that one.)

Krall's new Ruth Eckerd Hall show is scheduled to take place sometime in late March; we'll let you know when a new date is confirmed. on March 28. Tickets for the Feb. 14 show will be honored on the new date, and refunds are available if that doesn't work for you.

Finally, Krall was also supposed to perform at Sarasota's Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall on Feb. 15. The new date for that show is March 27.
