We’re sending Bonnie Raitt all of our positive thoughts for a speedy recovery. The 73-year-old blues singer was set to kick off her tour this month, but she has been forced to postpone her dates due to a “medical situation.” Bonnie’s team updated her fans on social media, and she received an outpouring of support from her fans.
The statement explains that she had to postpone five of her tour dates: “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.”
It continues, “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.”
