Eddie Money Cancels Concerts Due To Illness


Eddie Money, best known for his 1986 hit “Take Me Home Tonight,” has been forced to cancel the rest of his 2019 concerts due to pneumonia – including one in Canada.

A rep for the 70-year-old singer said he contracted pneumonia while recovering in hospital from a heart valve procedure.

Among the scrapped appearances is one at CannaFest on Aug. 9 in Grand Forks, BC.

Money told fans at the end of May that he was going into hospital after complaining of shortness of breath.

“I will be undergoing a minor, minimally invasive heart valve surgery,” he tweeted. “I appreciate your thoughts and prayers. I look forward to getting back win stage and rockin’ with you all!”
