Bonnie Raitt Reschedules Tour Dates
Bonnie Raitt has postponed several of her upcoming tour dates in order to undergo surgery.
The classic songwriter has been advised by doctors to rest for a couple of weeks following the procedure. It means that she will no longer perform at Brandi Carlile’s Mothership Weekend (12-14 May) and has been forced to reschedule her own headline shows.
Raitt’s team posted on her official Twitter page: “Bonnie has a medical situation that requires surgery to address. The doctors say that in order for her to heal properly, they recommend she not perform for a couple of weeks.
“Unfortunately, this overlaps our five tour dates in May, and we are very sorry to have to cancel our performance at
@brandicarlile’s Mothership Weekend on May 14th and postpone our shows in Athens, Louisville, Indianapolis and Pittsburgh.
“We deeply apologize for this delay and inconvenience. It’s always upsetting to have to disappoint her fans, band, crew and our promoters, but sometimes unforeseen things just happen.
“Thankfully, Bonnie’s in great hands. She was so looking forward to these shows, but we’re excited to be able to resume our 2023 tour, now kicking off in Dublin, Ireland, June 1st.
“Thank you for your well wishes and understanding, and we very much appreciate your respecting her request for privacy at this healing time.
