Two days before her scheduled appearance at the Grove of Anaheim, Lila Downs has canceled the show! News of the unfortunate occurrence was posted to the singer’s website with the explanation that she had undergone emergency surgery for appendicitis. Thankfully, Downs is said to be resting and recuperating and left her fans with the following message:
Me encuentro un poco hinchada y somnolienta pero fuerte como un aguila despues de que me echaron cuchillo en esta mañana de agosto. A causa de esta operación tuvimos que cancelar una gira importante para nosotros aquí en los Estados Unidos. Ya salí con bien gracias a Dios de esta apendicitis.
I am a little swollen and sleepy but strong and thankful for a successful operation of appendicitis here in New York. Unfortunately for this reason we needed to cancel our concerts this week in the U.S., but soon enough we’ll be out there doin’ our thing.
Word from the Grove is that they are attempting to reschedule the concert date. When that takes place and a new date is announced, tickets purchased for this Wednesday will reportedly be honored. Get well Lila!
