Boz Scaggs postpones series of shows in June and July due to “health reasons”

Credit: Chris PhelpsBoz Scaggs has postponed a run of U.S. tour dates he had lined up for the early summer because of “health reasons.”

According to a message posted on Scaggs’ official Facebook page, “Boz has been advised by his doctors that he cannot tour at this time. With some rest, he is expected to make a full and swift recovery.”

The Facebook note also includes a statement from 75-year-old singer/songwriter that reads, “I am so sorry to have to miss these shows. Playing for you all is my greatest joy. I hate to disappoint you. I am going to follow doctor’s orders so I can get back out on the road as soon as possible. Looking forward to seeing you all then.”

The postponed dates span from a June 21 show in Easton, Pennsylvania, through a July 9 concert in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. Six of these shows have been rescheduled for November, and Scaggs is hoping to find new dates for as many of the nixed concerts as possible. However, fans who want refunds for their tickets can get them at the original point of purchase.

Besides the rescheduled shows, Boz still has more than 25 other confirmed concerts lined up in August and September. Scaggs continues to support his 2018 studio album, Out of the Blues.
