The 1970s hitmaker and beloved actress has been forced to cancel all of her upcoming shows through the end of May 2017 due to the effects of a spinal condition she has suffered for some time now. 

In an announcement to fans on her social media accounts, Olivia Newton-John‘s management team explained that the country, pop, and musical star would be canceling all the performances scheduled throughout the Midwest in May. They also noted that new dates would be announced as soon as possible to make up for the cancellations. 

Citing a “bad issue” with sciatica, management did not say if there would be any changes to her other dates scheduled for June and other months in the year. All of her Midwest shows were scheduled between May 10th – 20th. 

Newton-John rose to popularity in the country music community after the launch of her 1973 single, “Let Me Be There” which soared across multiple charts and earned the No. 2 spot on Billboard’s US Country Chart. She also earned a Grammy Award for Best Country Female Performance for her work on the song. 

Our thoughts and prayers are with Olivia Newton-John during this time and we wish her a very speedy recovery. 

Watch one of her stunning performances of “Let Me Be There” from 1973 in the video below!
