Lambert Cancels Dates Due To Illness

Miranda Lambert‘s tour kicked off on a high note earlier this month with two sold-out shows, but the outing hit a snag when she was forced to cancel the upcoming Australian leg.

She announced cancellation of her tour dates Down Under this morning (2/28) on her official website. The singer is suffering from a respiratory infection and is under doctor’s orders not to perform.

She was set for a series of shows with Alan Jackson, which were scheduled to start this Friday (3/4) in Melbourne.

 “I was very much looking forward to Australia with Alan Jackson and performing for all the music lovers down under,” Lambert said in her web posting.

The dates—which sold out in minutes—included five arena performances, in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, as well as the CMC Rocks the Hunter festival. Australian artists will fill the spots.

Lambert’s The Revolution Continues tour kicked off with two sold-out shows at the famed Billy Bob’s Texas in Ft. Worth. She is the first artist to ever sell out back-to-back nights at the venue. Tickets for both nights were gone in a record breaking 30 minutes.
