A vague “medical situation” requiring surgery has forced Bonnie Raitt to cancel a number of concerts. The Grammy winner, 73, revealed it on Instagram on Friday.

“Bonnie has a health issue that needs to be fixed surgically. The doctors advise that she refrain from performing for a few weeks so that she can heal properly,” the statement said. We regret having to postpone our shows in Athens, Louisville, Indianapolis, and Pittsburgh as well as cancel our appearance at [Brandi Carlile’s Mothership Weekend] on May 14 due to this conflict with our five tour dates in May. ”.

The statement continued, “Deceiving her supporters, band, crew, and our promoters is never fun, but sometimes unforeseen things just happen. Thank goodness, Bonnie is in capable hands. Although we’re thrilled to be able to continue our 2023 tour, which will now begin in Dublin, Ireland, on June 1st, she was really looking forward to these shows. ”.

“We are very grateful that you respected her request for privacy during this healing period and we appreciate your good wishes and understanding. ”.
