GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

After an annual physical, officials said singer-songwriter Bonnie Raitt is facing a medical situation requiring immediate attention.

Raitt, the voice being multiple hit singles including "Something to Talk About," was scheduled to perform at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena on May 19. However, since she is in need of surgery, her part in the first portion of the summer tour with James Taylor & His All-Star Band has been cancelled.

Although specifics on her medical condition were not released, Raitt's prognosis is said to be good and she is expected to make a full recovery.

“I’m deeply sorry to have to disappoint my fans, James and colleagues with these cancellations," Raitt said. "I was so looking forward to our tour, but I’m very grateful that the doctors feel this can be taken care of with surgery. I’m feeling strong and am in great hands with my wonderful team."

She is expected to rejoin the tour on June 22.

Those who purchased tickets for a show prior to her return can request a refund at the original point of purchase.
