Singer-songwriter John Prine has postponed two performances to recuperate from forthcoming surgery. This follows the postponement of two concerts earlier this month due to illness.
“There’s nothing I hate more than canceling shows,” says Prine, who assures fans that all dates will be honored.
“I’ve been diagnosed with non-small cell carcinoma of the lung. Doctors here in Nashville have caught it early, and it is operable. They see no reason why I won’t fully recover. This is a different form of cancer, unrelated to what I had in 1997,” Prine says.
The December 6 concert in Greensboro, NC and the December 7 show in Charlotte, NC will continue as scheduled.
The pending surgery and following recuperation will move the Louisville, KY performances at the Brown Theatre from December 13 to February 28, while the December 14 show will now take place on March 1. All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new performance dates. The previously postponed November 9 Madison, WI show is rescheduled for March 15, and the November 8 Green Bay date will take place at a later date in 2014.
“For me, there’s nothing like performing. I look forward to seeing all my friends and fans in 2014. We have some great cities and venues lined up in 2014.”
