It’s certainly not the kind of news that we wanted to hear, but it is the kind of news that we’ve had to accept.
In a previous report, Rare Country shared that country music legend Tanya Tucker was forced to postpone six concert dates ahead of her sold-out show at the Dakota Sioux Casino in Watertown, South Dakota on Oct. 7.
It was on that day that the superstar unexpectedly fell ill. She was treated by doctors and nurses at a nearby clinic and was then diagnosed with a severe case of pneumonia.
Despite falling ill, Tanya wants to share how deeply saddened she is that she cannot perform as planned for her beloved and loyal fans.
On Oct. 12, Tanya took to Facebook with a heartfelt apology to followers and ticketholders. She wrote, “I cannot apologize enough to all the fans who bought tickets and were looking forward to seeing us on the road. I just feel terrible, but I’ll get even worse if I don’t take care of myself. I love you all!”
A statement on Tanya’s official website says that she is currently “recovering in a Nashville hospital.”
Thus far, Tanya has rescheduled the six shows, which you can see here. Although she is expected to return to the stage on Oct. 22, her re-scheduled performance at the Northern Quest Resort & Casino has now been officially cancelled. The original date for that show was to take place on Oct. 16, and then got moved to Jan. 6, 2017.
A statement on the Northern Quest Resort & Casino Facebook page reads, “Every effort will be made to bring Tanya Tucker back to Northern Quest sometime in the future. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience caused by this latest cancellation.”
It is unclear as to whether or not the new cancellation has anything to do with Tanya’s health. Nevertheless, Rare Country is glad that Tanya is getting the care that she needs. We send our get-well wishes to her at this time.
