“An update about this weekend’s shows…” McEntire shared. ”My doctor has advised me to go on vocal rest, so I have made the difficult decision to reschedule this weekend’s shows.”

“Thank you for understanding! Love, Reba,” McEntire’s statement concluded. 

McEntire was scheduled to appear in Raleigh, North Carolina at the PNC Arena on November 3, Columbus, Ohio at the Nationwide Arena on November 4 and in Indianapolis, Indiana at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse on November 5. 

According to McEntire’s official statement, those shows will have been rescheduled and will now take place on December 2 (Columbus, OH), December 3 (Raleigh, NC) and December 16 (Indianapolis, IN).

McEntire also encouraged fans to hold on to their tickets for the new dates as their tickets will be honored at the rescheduled show. 

Reba’s latest tour kicked off on October 13 in Lafayette, Louisiana at the Cajundome. She recently made a stop in Nashville for her first-ever headlining show at Bridgestone Arena. The sold-out event included a 30-song set that kept the capacity crowd on their feet from start to finish.

Reba: Live In Concert features support from Terri Clark and virtual collaborations with Brooks & Dunn and Vince Gill. 

The Oklahoma native’s show boasts impressive production, with costume changes, pyrotechnics, and more. 

Reba was recently honored for more than 58 million albums sold worldwide. Ahead of her Music City show, she was presented with a plaque commemorating the career milestone.

The country music icon is scheduled to perform at the 56th Annual CMA Awards on Wednesday, Nov. 9. Details about her highly anticipated performance are being kept under wraps for the time being, however, it’s reported that she will take the stage for a “special performance.” 

Reba will also return to the road in 2023 for an extension of Reba: Live In Concert. Kicking off on March 9, the next trek will conclude with the “Fancy” singer’s first-ever headlining performance at the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York City. 

“I am very grateful we’re continuing this tour on into 2023,” Reba said. “I’ve had so much fun being back out on the road and doing what I love to do most, entertaining people. And now getting to headline places like Madison Square Garden and bring my buddies Terri Clark and The Isaacs with me? Well, that’s just the extra icing on an already triple-layered, stuffed and filled, iced and frosted cake!”

In addition to touring, fans can catch Reba starring on Big Sky alongside her boyfriend, Rex Linn. The ABC drama airs Wednesday nights at 10pm ET.

In 2023, Reba will star in The Hammer on Lifetime. The much-anticiapted film was inspired by the life of traveling circuit judge, Kim Wanker.

According to a press release from the network, McEntire will play the role of Kim Wheeler, who is described as “outspoken, firecracker lawyer” who is appointed Juge of the 5th District of Nevada. As one of the few traveling judges left in America, Wheeler finds herself covering a new circuit after the reigning judge passes away under what is described as “suspicious circumstances.”

Additionally, McEntire recently released a holiday project, dubbed Reba: The Ultimate Christmas Collection, which features hits from her previous Christmas project, as well as “I Needed Christmas,” from Lifetime film, Reba McEntire’s Christmas In Tune.

“I’m excited to share this newly packaged collection of my all-time favorite Christmas songs,” McEntire shared. “It was so hard to narrow down to just twelve songs, but I hope my fans enjoy this journey through time!”

Reba McEntire’s next scheduled tour date will take place on Thursday, November 10 at Hertz Arena in Estero, Florida with special guest Terri Clark.
