Bruce Cockburn Forced to Cancel Upcoming Tour Due to Pneumonia

by on October 13, 2010

The Fredericton Playhouse regrets to announce that Bruce Cockburn’s upcoming performance on October 17 has been cancelled.  On the advice of his physicians, Cockburn has been forced to cancel his upcoming tour of the Maritimes and a date in Quebec City.

Cockburn was recently diagnosed with pneumonia after being admitted to a hospital in eastern Ontario shortly upon his return from a personal trip to Bolivia. His bout with pneumonia has also resulted in a partially collapsed lung, but he is expected to make a full recovery and is currently resting well in Ontario.

Said Cockburn, “I’m very disappointed to have to cancel this tour and know how inconvenient it is to many, but I’m just unable to perform in this condition.  I hope we will be able to reschedule all of the dates in the not too distant future.  I’m looking forward to getting back to each of the cities and towns on the tour as soon as possible.”

The Fredericton Playhouse urges all Bruce Cockburn ticket holders to contact the box office in person or by phone at 458-8344 for a full refund, no later than November 1st.  Box office hours are Monday to Friday, 10am-6pm.
