LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Singer LeAnn Rimes was forced to miss a date on her Spitfire tour, citing painful dental issues and a 3 A.M. visit to the emergency room.
Rimes had been set to play the Peppermill Concert Hall in West Wendover, Nevada on October 5th but was forced to reschedule.
Rimes had sent a tweet on Saturday to her fans, saying that she was "under anesthesia and a massive infection." Rimes tweeted I feel like I got hit in my right side of my face with a baseball bat 🙁 NOT a good feeling when I am getting on a plane. For all my fans at Wendover last night, the show will be rescheduled, not a canceled show. WORST way ever to kick off a tour."
Rimes did manage to perform the next day at at the Autry Museum at Griffith Park in Los Angeles but later that night, went to an emergency room.
"Feeling much better now, thanks to my husband's best friend who's an ER doc. I've been living in a dental nightmare for 10 months. I'm getting back on track though, I hope. I've had too many detours this year due to dental issues. I'm finally in great hands and being well taken care of. Last night was wonderful, performing to help raise money for the Autry Museum and earlier in the day performing a few songs to help raise money for the cats and dogs at living-free.org," Rimes said in a post on her website.
Needless to say, I'm resting today. Thank you all for your support and understanding. The last 10 months of pain are hard for me to wrap my head around. I'm sure it's difficult for you all to understand too. Let's just pray I'm on the mend. I'll see you all on the road very soon," the singer added.
In August, Rimes checked into rehab for a month to deal with stress and anxiety.
As of yet, no additional dates have been rescheduled. Her next scheduled date is Oct. 11th at Orr Auditorium in New Wilmington, PA. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
