Bice Sidelined By Surgery

Bo Bice won’t be returning to the “American Idol Live ” tour too soon following emergency surgery for an intestinal blockage.

The singer was reportedly rushed to the hospital before an August 18th concert in Las Vegas.

As to when Bice will be able to return to the road, a note on the Web site for his band, Sugar Money, said, “After the successful surgery, it is critical that Bo rests. For how long is yet to be officially determined.”

The tour is scheduled to wrap September 10th.
