On April 28, Bonnie Raitt‘s team shared an announcement about her health. They said Raitt had a “medical situation” that required immediate attention.
The team also shared that Raitt would need to undergo surgery.
Because of everything, Raitt was forced to cancel her May 14 appearance at Brandi Carlile’s Mothership Weekend in Miramar Beach. She also postponed four shows and rescheduled them.
Their rescheduled dates are:
- Athens, GA – rescheduled date TBD 2024
- Louisville, KY – rescheduled for June 30, 2023
- Indianapolis, IN – rescheduled for July 1, 2023
- Pittsburgh, PA – rescheduled date TBD 2024
Raitt’s team said she was sincerely sorry about the unexpected cancellation and postponements:
“It’s always upsetting to have to disappoint her fans, band, crew and our promoters, but sometimes unforeseen things just happen,” they said. “Thankfully, Bonnie’s in great hands. She was so looking forward to these shows…”
At the time, Raitt’s team said she was hoping to be back on tour in June.
