Country star Travis Tritt recently took to social media to give his fans an update on his health and the status of his upcoming shows, after he abruptly canceled the remainder of the ‘Can’t Miss Tour’ with Chris Janson.

He wrote, “Update: An MRI this week revealed that I do have a torn meniscus in my left knee as I’d suspected. I plan to return to the road to play my remaining 2022 shows from December 1 thru December 10. My knee surgery will take place in mid December.”

One user commented under the post asking about one of Tritt’s shows that is set for July 2023. The singer/songwriter assured his fan that he will be “good to go way before then.”

On Tuesday afternoon (Nov. 1), Tritt shared a statement on social media regarding his recent cancellations due to an injury.

“I have been experiencing severe pain in my left knee for the past few weeks due to a possible torn meniscus,” Tritt wrote. ”With short bits of rest between shows, I had hoped that the pain would eventually subside and I could complete all of my remaining dates in November, including all the dates on the current ‘Can’t Miss Tour’ with Chris Janson and War Hippies.”

He went on to explain that the pain he has been enduring is unbearable and he can no longer tour until he recovers from the injury. 

“Unfortunately, the pain has become impossible to ignore and I will not be able to do any further shows in November,” he continued. ”Refunds for these shows will be available at point of ticket purchase. I appreciate everyone’s understanding and I hope to return to the road as soon as possible.”

The hopeful news of Tritt’s diagnosis and plan for recovery comes after he and Janson announced the cancellation of their November 10 concert in Anderson, South Carolina, citing “reasons beyond our control.”

 In addition, the artists made the decision to cancel their appearance in Estero, Florida on October 28, due to the aftermath of Hurricane Ian.

They announced the co-headlining trek earlier this year after teaming up to release the song “Things You Can’t Live Without.” The duet by Tritt and Janson appears on Janson’s latest album, All In, which was released in April.  

“I’m really looking forward to the ‘Can’t Miss Tour’ with Chris this Fall. Our high-energy performances complement each other so well. Audiences are going to be thoroughly entertained,” Tritt shared upon the announcement of the tour. 

Janson added, “Excited to be out touring with one of my favorites. It’s gonna be a rowdy fall, and I’m looking forward to it!”

Janson is scheduled to take the stage in Nashville at the Grand Ole Opry on December 11. 

According to Tritt’s official website, his next scheduled tour date will take place on Thursday, December 1 in Abilene, Texas at Wylie PAC.
