Tanya Tucker‘s tour came to a halt earlier this month when the singer entered the hospital after suffering from an upper respiratory infection. Tucker was set to perform on October 7 in South Dakota, but just an hour before the concert she was taken to a clinic and was later transported to a Nashville hospital to receive treatment for pneumonia.
On Wednesday (October 12), Tucker issued a statement from the hospital to apologize to fans, as she revealed the postponement of her upcoming concert dates. Tucker didn’t like that she had to postpone the shows, but she knew she needed to take some time to rest and recover.
“I cannot apologize enough to all the fans who bought tickets and were looking forward to seeing us on the road. I just feel terrible, but I’ll get even worse if I don’t take care of myself. I love you all,” Tucker said.
One of Tucker’s shows, which was originally scheduled for October 16 at the Northern Quest Resort & Casino in Airway Heights, Washington, was postponed all the way into 2017. The rescheduled concert was set to take place on January 6, but now that date has been cancelled.
The cancellation seemed sudden, considering the fact that the date is several months down the road. The Spokesman-Review reported on the cancelled concert, saying Casino officials confirmed that Tucker’s management had cancelled the concert. All tickets purchased with a credit or debit card will be refunded automatically.
As of press time, Tucker’s team has not announced any other cancellations. We continue to send our prayers to Tucker, and hope she’s able to make a quick and complete recovery.
