Unfortunately, this came in too late for our press deadline.

From the Oregonian's Pop Music blog, posted by Luciana Lopez:

Neil Diamond at the Rose Garden Sep 22nd POSTPONED

Unforeseen tour production logistics have forced AEG Live to postpone Neil Diamond's September 22nd concert at Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon. The rescheduled Portland date is TBD until further notice.

Tickets for the September 22nd concert will be honored at the rescheduled performance (date TBD), or refunds will be available at the purchaser's original point of purchase. For tickets purchased online, please contact 1-877-263-9372 for refunds.

Aside from this sucking in and of itself, we put Neil smack at the top of this week's music section. Unfortunately, the show isn't happening this week, despite what's in the issue of the Mercury that's due out later today. Sorry, readers!
