A Message from John Prine

Nashville singer/songwriter John Prine is taking more time to recover from recent surgery.

As a result, he regrettably has to postpone his appearance Wednesday, February 7 in Fort Lauderdale to a later date (to be announced). He also will not appear on the Cayamo Cruise, which departs Miami on Friday, February 7.

In December 2013, Prine announced to fans that he had been diagnosed with non-small cell carcinoma of the lung.

The surgery to remove cancer was successful and Prine's recuperation has gone well, however, he will need a few additional weeks before he can resume performing.

All tickets for the Fort Lauderdale performance will be honored once a new date is confirmed, and any questions regarding ticket status should be directed to point of purchase.

A Message from John Prine

Earlier this month, famed singer/songwriter John Prine postponed two concerts due to illness. After further consultation with his doctors, he will have to also reschedule another two appearances.
   
“There’s nothing I hate more than canceling shows,” says John Prine, who wants his fans to know that all dates will be honored.

Mr. Prine continues, “I’ve been diagnosed with non-small cell carcinoma of the lung. Doctors here in Nashville have caught it early, and it is operable. They see no reason why I won’t fully recover.”

Prine says, “This is a different form of cancer, unrelated to what I had in 1997.”

John Prine will play the December 6 concert in Greensboro, NC and the December 7 show in Charlotte, NC as scheduled.

Prine’s pending surgery and recuperation will move his Louisville, KY performances at the Brown Theatre from December 13 to February 28, while the December 14 show will now take place on March 1.  All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new performance dates. The previously-postponed November 9 Madison, WI show is now March 15, and the November 8 Green Bay date will also take place at a later date in 2014.

“For me, there’s nothing like performing”, says John. “I look forward to seeing all my friends and fans in 2014. We have some great cities and venues lined up.”
