LeAnn Rimes Cancels We Fest Appearance

LeAnn Rimes won’t be appearing at two concerts this week because of what her manager describes as “a severe case of tonsillitis which has inflamed her vocal cords.” A Thursday (Aug. 7) show at Joe’s Bar in Chicago has been postponed, and a Friday (Aug. 8) appearance at We Fest in Detroit Lakes, Minn., has been canceled. She was scheduled to perform at the festival on a bill with Kenny Chesney, Sugarland and Little Big Town. Rimes’ upcoming tour schedule includes an Aug. 13 headlining show in Dallas before rejoining Chesney’s tour in New Orleans on Aug. 14.
