Aretha Franklin Postpones Upcoming Oklahoma shows

Aretha Franklin is postponing two upcoming concerts in Oklahoma, citing a busy travel schedule.

The Queen of Soul released a statement Friday saying she was rescheduling her Oct. 17 concert in Durant and Oct. 22 show in Tulsa.

Franklin, who lives in Detroit, only travels by tour bus. She says she’s not prepared to travel so far again after driving to the West Coast this summer.

Franklin says she will reschedule the dates.
