Aretha Franklin has been doing her best to keep tour dates on the agenda in 2016, but they keep getting canceled. Early this year, a pair of Florida shows were determined to be understaffed. Later on, travel requirements for a show in Oklahoma proved insurmountable. Now, “doctors’ orders” have caused the Queen of Soul to cancel five dates through the fall.
The canceled shows: An August 26 concert in Vienna, Virginia; a solo performance and a duet engagement with Tony Bennett at Radio City Music Hall; and October shows in Detroit and St. Louis.
November concerts in Minnesota and Chicago are still on scheduled, reports Rolling Stone.
