Aretha Franklin wants to take the day off. No matter what she seems to really need the break so that she has to cancel her concert in North Carolina, for which she's been scheduled to go on stage this week in New Jersey.
Due to that fact, Franklin herself refused to reschedule the Cary show for August, instead of next year rescheduling. Commenting on the cancellation, House of Blues' vice president of Southeast concerts Jim Mallonee claimed Franklin's reason "...is just bizarre."
Despite all, Franklin will still perform at Harrah's in Atlantic City, N.J., on Friday and Saturday and in Atlanta on June 19.
