For those that were planning on seeing Dwight Yoakam perform on Thursday, February 22 the Packard Music Hall in Warren, Ohio, your plans have unfortunately changed. The “Guitars, Cadillacs” singer came down with an illness that is preventing him from taking the stage.
His team issued a statement on his Facebook page, writing, “We regret to inform you that Dwight Yoakam’s performance tonight at W.D. Packard Music Hall is being rescheduled. Dwight has been diagnosed with bronchitis and laryngitis, and his doctor advised him not to risk damaging or causing further loss of his voice by performing tonight. Dwight is hopeful that with rest and treatment, the other shows this weekend will not be affected.”
Like the statement read, his show on Friday (Feb. 23) in Zanesville, Ohio, and his Saturday and Sunday (Feb. 24 & 25) concerts in Charles Town, West Virginia will hopefully go on as planned.
If you have a ticket to the now-rescheduled Packard Music Hall performance, your ticket will be honored at the new date, which has yet to be confirmed. Yoakam’s team advises fans the contact their point-of-purchase if they have any issues or concerns.
The statement continued, “We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your continued understanding. Dwight deeply regrets not being able to perform tonight.”
We hope Dwight recovers quickly from this and is able to get back on the road soon!
