It was just announced that Bonnie Raitt, who is accompanying James Taylor on a full-length tour, is canceling the first leg of said tour due to a ‘medical issue’. The news came via Bonnie Raitt’s website where a full statement was made along with a quote from Bonnie herself.
“I’m deeply sorry to have to disappoint my fans, James and colleagues with these cancellations. I was so looking forward to our tour, but I’m very grateful that the doctors feel this can be taken care of with surgery. I’m feeling strong and am in great hands with my wonderful team. I fully expect to return for the second leg of the US tour in June followed by our European tour in July.
Thank you all for your concern and understanding that the best gift you could give me is respecting my wish for privacy and giving me space to heal. Can’t wait to see you all back on the road again soon!”
As of right now, it’s unclear what exactly the issue is, but according to her doctors the prognosis is that she is in good hands and is expected to make a full recovery.
We’ll have more as this develops.
