Multiple Luke Bryan Shows Affected After Singer Falls Ill & Follows Doctors’ Advice Not To Sing
Luke Bryan took to social media on Friday (August 4) to share some bad news with his fans in Salt Lake City, Utah. The “But I’ve Got a Beer in My Hand” singer revealed he’s “been battling a head cold” for two weeks now.
Although Bryan had been able to perform during those two weeks, he was “just not getting better” throughout the day on August 4.
“I truly can not give you the show I want to give so I am going to have to postpone tonight’s show at USANA Amphitheatre to August 31, 2023. Thank you so much for understanding,” he announced.
Dear Salt Lake fans, for the past couple of weeks I’ve been battling a head cold. I have been spending those days warming up and singing and have been able to perform. Today I have followed the same routine trying to not give up but I am just not getting better. I truly can not…

Bryan was still under the weather the following day (August 5). Doctors advised him not to sing, so he canceled his show for that night in Boise, Idaho.

Luke Says He Can “Hardly Talk” In Announcement Canceling Appearance At Watershed Festival in Washington State
The weekend became even more “frustrating” for Bryan. He was forced to cancel his appearance at the Watershed Music Festival in George, Washington.
He said he was sorry to let his fans down, but he could “hardly even talk,” let alone sing. Bryan was especially sad to cancel his appearance at the festival because he always enjoys playing there.
“This festival is one of the most beautiful places we perform and one of the most fun crowds always,” he said.
Bryan has not announced any additional cancellations or postponements as of 10:45 AM ET on Monday (August 7). His next show is scheduled for August 10 in Rogers, Arkansas, followed by an August 12 concert in Nashville, Tennessee.
We hope Bryan gets to feeling better soon!
