Mark Chesnutt was forced to cancel multiple concerts this week so he can focus on his health.
The “Bubba Shot the Jukebox” singer announced on Tuesday (January 31) that he needed to cancel three of his upcoming shows. The affected shows were scheduled to take place on February 1, February 2, and February 3 in Florida in Key West, West Palm Beach, and Holiday.
“Due to health issues and doctors orders, I will unfortunately be required to cancel this week of performances at Key Western Fest, Renegades, and The Stockyard in order to rest and recuperate,” Chesnutt shared in an announcement on social media.
Chesnutt apologized for the cancellations, saying, “Having to cancel shows is never fun for me, but I thank y’all for your support.”
Chesnutt’s latest cancellations come not long after the singer returned to touring following an extended hiatus.
Chesnutt underwent “urgent” back surgery in July 2021. He initially took some time off to recover from the operation, but his recovery was much more complicated than he anticipated.
The singer was eventually forced to cancel all of his concerts remaining in 2021. In February 2022, he said he needed some more time off after discovering “some underlying medical issues.”
Chesnutt had some more encouraging news to share by April 2022. He said he was undergoing physical therapy and made some changes to his diet, and was seeing good results.
He was eventually able to return to touring in the summer of 2022. So it’s unfortunate to hear he’s experienced another setback now.
Chesnutt’s next show is scheduled for February 17 at the Island Resort & Casino in Harris, Michigan. We hope he gets to feeling better soon so he can get back on the road!
