In the early 90’s i had tickets to see Sade at The Aladdin Theater in Las Vegas. I’d waited years for the chance to see them live (yes, Sade is a band, not just a woman), as back then nobody ever came to Vegas, with the exception of a few crap artists. So this would obviously be something special! Unfortunately, they cancelled the show 🙁 We were told we could hang onto the tickets in case they rescheduled, or we could return for a refund. Well, with no rescheduled date announced, and my understanding that singer Sade Adu suffered from stage fright, i thought i may as well get my money back. Of course, they did reschedule for later in the year, but when the time came around i was broke.
I will not let that chance pass by again, and maybe, just maybe they’ll come to Seattle to support the new album “Soldier Of Love“? I sure hope so because this clip from the early 90’s just rubs salt in my emotional wound. Here’s Sade and my fave song ‘Cherish The Day’…
