Grammy winning country artist Tanya Tucker has been forced to cancel more concerts in the wake of an emergency surgery, clearing the remaining shows on her August calendar.
Updating fans via social media, the singer-songwriter says she needs more time to recover after a hip surgery in July.
“Hey Y’all, I’m sorry to say but I haven’t been given the green light to travel and perform just yet,” Tucker posted. “My Dr. wants me to continue with more [physical therapy] in order to fully recover.”
Tucker announced the surgery last month, telling fans her doctors had discovered a hip fracture, and that the injury had gone unnoticed for some time. At the time, she canceled all of her July concert dates, and has now been forced to put six more shows on hold.
According to her announcement, those shows affected include:
August 19th Vernon, NY – Vernon Downs
August 20th Nichols, NY – Tiogo Downs
August 21st Alexandria, VA – The Birchmere
August 26th Roanoke, VA – Jefferson Center
August 27th Cherokee, NC – Harrah’s Event Centre
August 29th Lexington, KY – Railbird Festival
Some of the canceled concerts were slated to be part of Tucker’s headlining Bring My Flowers Now Tour, while others were included on her CMT Next Women of Country: Bring My Flowers Now Tour. The latter is set to feature more than 35 dates in total, as Tanya Tucker travels the nation with female country artists like Erin Enderlin, Walker County and Aubrie Sellers. There’s no word on whether or not the shows will be re-booked.
At this time, Tucker is still expected to perform back-to-back shows at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado, with Brandi Carlile on September 11-12.
