Dynamic Malian singer Rokia Traore, who was scheduled to perform at the Pritzker Pavilion on August 10 as part of the free Downtown Sound series in Millennium Park, has canceled her U.S. tour. She’ll be replaced by Shellac (pictured), Steve Albini’s long-running trio with Bob Weston and Todd Trainer. Shearwater remains the opening act for the concert.
