Aretha Franklin Cancels Va. Show, Cites Health

Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin has canceled a concert in Charlottesville for health reasons.

The Daily Progress reports Franklin called off the concert on the advice of her doctors.

The concert had been rescheduled for Wednesday night at the Paramount Theater. It originally had been set for Oct. 1 but was pushed back after Franklin’s son, Eddie Franklin, was beaten at a Detroit gas station.

Theater officials say fans can get ticket refunds from the place of purchase.
