Tanya Tucker forced to cancel more concerts in the wake of her emergency hip surgery this summer

Tanya Tucker has been forced to scratch more concerts dates in the wake of her emergency hip surgery, cancelling all of her remaining shows in August.

Updating fans via social media, Tucker says she needs more time to recover after a hip surgery in July: “Hey Y’all, I’m sorry to say but I haven’t been given the green light to travel and perform just yet, My Dr. wants me to continue with more [physical therapy] in order to fully recover.”

Tucker announced she underwent emergency surgery last month, telling fans her doctors had discovered a hip fracture which had gone unnoticed for some time. She initially canceled all of her July concert dates, and has now been forced to put six more shows on hold.  As of press time, Tucker is still expected to perform back-to-back shows at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado, with Brandi Carlile on September 11-12.
