Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Buddy Guy has canceled his upcoming concert at Pearl River Resort in Philadelphia.
As part of his “Buddy Guy Damn Right Farewell Tour,” the 86-year-old canceled his Sept. 2 show “due to an unforeseen necessary medical procedure.” At this time, it’s unknown what the procedure was for.
“Due to an unforeseen necessary medical procedure, Buddy has been advised by his team to cancel his performance this weekend at Pearl River Resort,” Guy said in a statement. “We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to reschedule a new performance date in 2024.”
Guy, considered a Blues giant, has put out multiple hits such as “Blues Don’t Care,” “Tramp,” and “Damn Right, I’ve Got the Blues.” He was also a key influence on multiple musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, and Gary Clark, Jr.
According to a release from Pearl River Resort, guests who purchased tickets through etix.com will automatically be issued a full refund.
It’s unclear when Guy will be back on the stage with concerts still scheduled for Sept. 6-8 in California and Arizona. He is also set to return to the Magnolia State on Sept. 15 for a show in Tupelo.
