Lady A had to step back on plans to take the stage at Lakefront Music Fest in Minnesota this past Saturday due to a medical emergency. Group member Charles Kelley has suffered appendicitis.

While the group has shared that they were eager to perform their first concert in over a year, band members Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood took to social media on July 10 to apologize to fans for the swift cancellation.

“After such a long wait, there isn’t much that could keep us from our fans,” Lady A tweeted. “Unfortunately, Charles has appendicitis, so we’re sorry to say we won’t be with you in Minnesota and Lakefront Music Fest tonight. This morning Charles is in good hands, and we’re continuing to pray for his recovery. The minute he is cleared by his doctors,” the band added, “we will be back on the road to see y’all. We appreciate your understanding. – dave & hills.”

On July 11, Kelley kept fans in the know with a post on Instagram.

“Hey guys – sitting here in the hospital and so bummed to have missed performing our first show back in Minnesota, not to mention in 16 months – that’s an understatement. But the ol’ appendix had other plans. didn’t even know what an appendix was until Friday when it sent me to the ER. Love y’all and be back soon enough.”

Lady A has announced earlier this year some exciting plans to “be back soon enough.” The group will embark on a 34-city concert series for their What A Song Can Do Tour. Carly Pearce, Niko Moon and Tenille Arts will be joining them on this coast to coast showdown.

While fans and Lady A alike share the same longing to be united once again in concert, the desire to get a ticket to this tour is even more elevated.
