Rimes to have surgery for leg infection.
Country singer LeAnn Rimes has been forced to cancel three concerts this week as she is about to undergo surgery for a leg infection, her publicist, Diana Baron, said in a statement Monday July 10th. It is reported that she will need about three or four days to recover.
She suffered a "tear in the tissue" of one of her legs, Baron confirmed while adding "It's a minor surgery, but because of the infection it was urgent that she takes care of it right away".
The concerts cancelled by Rimes are those in Hampton Beach, N.H. scheduled for Thursday July 13th, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada on Friday and Saturday. She was expected to play the remaining dates of her "This Woman" tour after a three- to four-day recovery, Baron said.
