Bonnie Raitt has pulled out of the first leg of her U.S. tour with James Taylor due to an unspecified "medical situation" that requires surgery.
Raitt on Monday posted a statement on her Facebook page apologizing to fans and saying the medical issue arose following her annual physical. She says the prognosis is "good" and a full recovery is expected.
The 68-year-old Grammy winner says she expects to rejoin Taylor for his tour's second leg in June and a European tour in July.
Raitt's hits include "Something To Talk About" and "I'm in the Mood." She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000.
