Tanya Tucker Diagnosed With Pneumonia, Cancels Watertown Show, Tour
Due to recent hospitalization, Tanya Tucker has decided to cancel her upcoming performances, including one in Watertown.
The 58-year-old singer was originally scheduled to perform at the Dakota Sioux Casino on October 7. However, due to an upper respiratory infection prior to the concert, she had to postpone. Tucker hoped to reschedule the show to Oct. 19.
According to KSFY, Tucker was diagnosed with pneumonia at the Brown Clinic in Watertown, then airlifted to her hometown of Nashville the next day. She has remained there in hopes of recovering.
Tucker has now officially decided to cancel all remaining performances in her North American tour, including the show in Watertown.
In a press release, Tucker says:
“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.”
Tucker took a break from performing for a number of years, due to a battle with depression after the deaths of her parents. She also had a cosmetic procedure that went wrong, causing her to hold off for awhile. She returned to songwriting and touring in 2015.
Tucker was also hospitalized in March of 2016 when she was diagnosed with bronchitis.
All tickets will be refunded. Ticket holders can call 1-800-658-4717 for more details.
