On Tuesday (November 29th), LeAnn Rimes announced that she was canceling her performance at the Turning Stone Resort Casino Event Center in Verona, New York due to an illness. The event was set to take place on Friday (December 2nd).

In a Facebook post, Turning Stone shared a statement by LeAnn Rimes announcing her plans to cancel her Joy: The Holiday Tour performance at its venue. “To my Verona, NY fans, I’m sorry to announce that we’ll have to cancel the show this Friday,” Rimes explained. “Because I’m too sick to travel and perform. It breaks my heart I can’t be there as I was so excited to celebrate the holiday season with you all. We will reschedule and I look forward to that time when we can be together again.”

The venue then stated that refunds for LeAnn Rimes’ will be provided from the original point of purchase. However, some fans commented on the Facebook post that tickets are still showing up through Ticketmaster and there hasn’t been updates about the concert cancellation. “You may want to let Ticketmaster know,” one fan wrote. “My tickets are still showing, they’re still selling tickets and I still haven’t received an email.”

Meanwhile, LeAnn Rimes fans wished for her to have a quick recovery. “I’m so sorry. Feel better soon. We were looking forward to your show, but, understandably your health matters,” an admirer shared. Another added, “I was looking forward to this! Bummer. I hope you feel better soon LeAnn Rimes! We saw the Christmas show a couple years ago, it was awesome.”

LeAnn Rimes’ Joy: The Holiday Tour was set to kick off in Verona, New York. Instead, it will (hopefully) start in Riverside, Iowa on December 9th. Other stops on the tour include Ryman Auditorium in Nashville; two day stop at the Chinook Winds Casino Showroom in Lincoln City, Oregon; and Northern Quest Resort and Casino in Airway Heights, Washington.
