Aretha Franklin Cancels Concerts Due To Health Issues

By  |  34 Comments

afQueen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, has cancelled her Chicago and Connecticut shows as per doctor’s orders. In a news release on Monday, it is said that Franklin will need treatment around the time that the shows were supposed to take place in the two cities. The kind of treatment that Franklin will undergo is not specified.

Franklin was scheduled to appear on May 20th, in Chicago, with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Corporate Night fundraiser. Singer Janelle Monae will be stepping in for the singer. She will be doing classical versions of her songs, which she will initially debut with the San Francisco Symphony, on Thursday night. Franklin was also scheduled for May 26th at the Foxwoods Resort & Casino in Connecticut.

Franklin has had health issues in the past, which she rarely discusses. In November 2010, the singer underwent surgery, but did not disclose what it was for. She later gave small detail in a magazine saying that it all started with a sharp pain in her side, during a concert in Toronto, in  2009, saying that the pain, “was so hard it almost brought me to my knees.”

Hopefully the 71 year old songstress will recover nicely and be able to resume her engagements in June.  Even if it takes the singer longer to recover, Franklin has already paid her dues to society and deserves all the time needed to restore her health.

Get well soon.

    Aretha, I love you! I have loved you for a long time and I sure hope to love you some more. All of your music takes me to good, sweet places! Take care of yourself first. “Ain’t No Way” it can be any other way! Always, Skull
