The Queen of Soul won’t be coming to the Island after all. Aretha Franklin has canceled her Nov. 11 concert at Treasure Island Casino in Red Wing. The show was actually a rescheduled date from a postponed May 28 concert.
Aretha’s management told Treasure Island that she was canceling due to “continuing health issues.”
In late August, Aretha, 74, canceled at least five concerts – including an appearance at a 90th birthday celebration for Tony Bennett – due to doctor’s orders, it was announced.
Treasure Island was to have been her first concert after the run of cancellations, which extended into October.
Treasure Island tickets will be refunded at place of purchase.
