Pianist George Winston has been forced to postpone his Sept. 21 concert at the Bing Crosby Theater in Spokane and his Sept. 22 concert at the Panida Theatre in Sandpoint.
Winston has cancelled all of his shows through September — at least 11 of them. The cancellations are for undisclosed medical reasons.
Ticketholders can hold on to their tickets and use them for a rescheduled show at a to-be-announced date, or they can get a refund at the point of purchase.

Brandi Carlile has been booked into the Knitting Factory on Oct. 6 — which will be just two months after her appearance at the Festival at Sandpoint.
So, choose your preference: The lakeshore under the stars? Or the downtown Spokane nightclub? Or both? There are probably a number of Brandi Carlile fanatics who will choose both.
At the Knitting Factory, she'll be appearing with Justin Townes Earle and Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit. Tickets for that show will be $26, on sale Friday, 10 a.m. through Ticketfly.
The Festival at Sandpoint appearance will be Aug. 5, and tickets are $36.95 now on sale through TicketsWest.
I'd love to hear from anyone who attended the KISS concert at the Arena or the Judds at the Northern Quest outdoor venue.
What did you think about the shows? I'd also like to hear opinions about the new Northern Quest venue. I hear there were some problems with the seats.

I have to admit: I didn't think the Northern Quest Resort and Casino's new outdoor venue would be having acts of this magnitude. Here's the summer lineup they just announced this morning.
As part of The Last Encore Tour, The Judds will perform on Saturday, June 25.
On Thursday, July 14, the Steve Miller Band takes the stage.
Willie Nelson and Family will perform Sunday, July 31.
The Beach Boys take the stage on Saturday, August 6 as a part of their 50th Anniversary Tour.
2011 Country Hall of Fame Inductee Reba McEntire performs on Friday, August 12 with special guest Sunny Sweeney.

Santana, along with special guest Michael Franti, performs on Friday, August 26.
This new outdoor venue will be in the grassy area between the hotel and the parking garage. It will have a covered stage and seating for around 4,000 or 5,000. It's still under construction.
All seats will be reserved. Tickets to Keith are already on sale; tickets to the Judds go on sale today (May 4) and tickets to remaining shows go on sale May 17 at 10 a.m. Call (877) 777-5252 or go to TicketsWest.
They are calling this the Pepsi Outdoor Summer Concert series, having obviously landed a corporate sponsorship.
The Northern Quest says “people will be able to see performers in Spokane they would otherwise have to travel to Seattle or Portland to see.”
To which I would say: Or at least to The Gorge.
