Earlier this month (Nov. 1), country music star Travis Tritt stepped away from the spotlight to prioritize his health. A knee injury forced the platinum-selling artist cancel the remainder of his Can’t Miss Tour with Chris Janson.
Tritt recently turned to social media to give an update on his health and future touring plans.
“Update: An MRI this week revealed that I do have a torn meniscus in my left knee, as I’d suspected,” clarified the hitmaker. “I plan to return to the road to play my remaining 2022 shows from December 1 thru December 10.”
Although the vocalist can still perform, Tritt confirmed that he had already scheduled surgery.
“My knee surgery will take place in mid-December,” he added.
Tritt is slated to pick up in Abilene, TX, on Thursday, Dec. 1, and will wrap up in Kansas City, MO, at Ameristar Casino. Country music fans with tickets to shows in late 2023 questioned if Tritt would be recovered from his operation in time or if there is a possibility that the dates would be rescheduled.
The country crooner assured concert-goers that he would be more than ready to perform.
“I noticed 2day u plan to play rock the south in Cullman in July 2023. Is that still in play travis, or will you have 2 cancel?” asked the Twitter user. “I’ll be good to go before then. I’ll be there next July,” he replied.
While many wished the singer-songwriter a speedy recovery, others expressed their concern about his ability to perform in the future. Tritt placed any speculations to rest and admitted that he would “come back with a vengeance after surgery,” just like he did in 2015.
Tritt has faced several obstacles throughout his career but bounced back stronger each time. In 2015, a blazing fire broke out at his Georgia home and in 2019 he was involved in a fatal crash that left two dead and one injured. The drunk driving accident occurred in front of his tour bus on Veterans Highway in Myrtle Beach. Tritt’s team was not harmed, as the driver attempted to avoid the collision.
Following the sudden news about the Can’t Miss Tour – Janson told fans that he tirelessly tried “every way” to continue the trek, but was “unable” to make it work. Despite the unexpected cancelation, the chart-topping artist is already scheduled to play a string of dates through July.
