Loretta Lynn Cancels Additional Tour Dates Following May Stroke
In the process of recovery following her recent stroke this past spring, Loretta Lynn cancelled a handful of additional tour dates originally set for July.
The country legend will not be continuing on with her scheduled performances at Hoyt Sherman Place in Des Moines, Iowa, on July 7 as well as at Iowa’s Five Flags Center on July 21. Both dates have been taken off of her website at this time.
While Lynn herself did not release a statement regarding the cancellations at this time, it has been said that the shows will not go on due to “circumstances beyond our control.”
Another stop on the tour that has been dropped at the moment is her July 8 show at the Washington Pavilion of Arts & Science, which still appears to have a spot on her website consequently enough. Both the Washington Pavilion and the Five Flags Center expressed how they would gladly welcome Lynn back for dates in 2018 if possible.
Lynn suffered from her stroke on May 4 while she was staying at her home. She was then transferred over to a hospital in Nashville and has been going through the lengthy recovery process in a rehab center since around mid-May. Her sister, Crystal Gayle, sent a couple updates out to fans via social media following the incident to let them know that Lynn was going to be just fine.
No additional details regarding Lynn’s status or the rescheduling of shows has been given out at this time. Fans can keep a watch on Lynn’s website for more details.
