Aretha Franklin Cancels Concert In Michigan After Health Concerns
Aretha Franklin was forced to cancel her upcoming show in Michigan over an undisclosed health issue.
In an open letter, the “Respect” singer announced that she would be canceling her July 27 show at the DTE Energy Pine Knob Theater in Clarkston, Michigan, due to “miscalculation” of the end of her treatment.
“It would be totally disruptive to stop them now and go into concert with total success right at the door,” Franklin stated.
“Aretha fully intends to get back to her full schedule of work as soon as she can,” Franklin’s publicist David Brokaw explained.
Franklin’s reps did not open up about the nature of the singer’s illness.
In 2010, the soul singer was forced to cancel six months worth of shows to undergo surgery for an undisclosed health issue.
We hope Aretha recovers soon.
