“It is with a heavy heart we announce Tanya Tucker’s show for this Saturday, July 17, 2021 has been cancelled,” read Big Top Chautauqua’s statement on social media. “Tanya has been admitted to the hospital today for an emergency hip replacement surgery as an MRI has revealed a hip fracture that requires immediate attention. We are in the process of working with her team to reschedule the performance for a later date.”
The announcement also impacts a July 31 stop at the Sugar Creek Casino in Hinton, Okla. that’s part of Tucker’s CMT Next Women of Country: Bring My Flowers Now tour.
Tucker’s long itinerary of concerts beyond this month includes festival dates at Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion (Sept. 10) at the birthplace of country music, Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival in Franklin, Tenn. and Austin City Limits Music Festival (Oct. 1) in the heart of Texas.
In a Thursday night (July 15) Facebook post, Tucker adds that she’ll be “at home healing for a few weeks” but “can’t wait to get back out and see you as soon as I can.”
