Aretha Franklin Ordered By Doctor to Cancel Upcoming Concerts

Aretha Franklin has cancelled several of her upcoming performances at a doctor’s request.

The 74-year-old Grammy-winning entertainer will be taking some time off to get some needed rest due to an undisclosed health issue.

“Due to doctors’ orders I will have to cancel a few concerts for the next month or so,” Aretha said in a statement.

Among the cancelled performances was a concert at New York City’s famed Radio City Music Hall in honor of Tony Bennett‘s 90th birthday.

Aretha also said she will return to performing in November.
