Dionne Warwick, 82, cancels Illinois show after ‘medical incident’

Dionne Warwick has canceled her upcoming show in Illinois due to medical reasons, according to an email obtained by TMZ from the venue, Rivers Casino Des Plaines. The email states that the show, scheduled for June 24, 2023, has been canceled due to a medical incident. The casino has assured fans that all ticket purchases will receive a full refund and apologized for the inconvenience. However, the casino did not disclose what caused the medical incident, but TMZ reports that it was related to one of her legs. Despite this, the 82-year-old singer is already on the mend, according to reports.

Fans of the “Heartbreaker” singer have taken to Twitter to send their well wishes and prayers. There has been no update on whether Warwick’s other scheduled concerts will continue as planned. These include shows in Bridgeport, Conn., Bensalem, Pa., Selbyville, Del., Gethsemane, Ky., Ojai, Calif., and Beverly Hills, Calif.

Earlier this year, Warwick revealed that she and Dolly Parton were working on a gospel song together called “Peace Like a River.” She expressed her excitement about the collaboration and said it would be very special. No update has been given on the release of the duet.
