Bo Bice underwent emergency intestinal surgery in Nashville last Thursday Oct 5th.
Former American Idol star Bo Bice has to unfortunately cancel his three concert dates in Georgia, Florida and Anaheim, California after he was diagnosed with intussusception, an intestinal condition found mostly in young children and which he may have had since he was born.
According to his Website, Bo was hospitalized Sept. 26 after experiencing a relapse of his condition. "After the first round of tests was completed last week, Bo's medical team concluded on review of the results that surgery could not wait, and he was immediately admitted to the hospital," the singer's management team explained.
"The surgery was not easy or routine, and after a setback the following day, Bo is now recovering well under the supervision of his doctors and hospital staff. We are confident that Bo will have a complete recovery, and hopeful that this procedure will be the final resolution to the problems that have existed for the past year."
The rocker is expected to make a full recovery and currently recovering at the hospital in Nashville. There has yet any words on the prospects for the rest of the tour remain.
