Amy Grant postpones fall tour following hospitalization

Sept & Oct dates moved to 2023

Amy Grant has postponed her September and October tour dates to give more time to recover from injuries sustained during a biking accident last month. Grant was hospitalized on July 27th after she had fallen from a bicycle in Nashville. Although she was wearing a helmet, she sustained a concussion that requires more time to heal.

“Amy is getting stronger every day,” Grant’s manager shares on social media. “Just as she did after her heart surgery, we are amazed at how fast she heals. However, although she is doing much better, we have made the difficult decision to postpone her fall tour so she can concentrate on her recovery and rebuild her stamina. She wants to be able to give 100% when she tours and, unfortunately, we do not think that will be the case by the time rehearsals would start for the fall dates. She will resume touring with her Christmas tour with Michael W. Smith and her annual Christmas At The Ryman residency with her husband Vince Gill. Amy would like to extend her gratitude for all the many good wishes and prayers offered since the accident. She feels the impact of the collective good will extended her way. Thank you.”

The contemporary Christian singer will now perform those shows between February and April 2023 with all tickets being honored for the new dates. These shows follow the postponement of four August concerts in Knoxville, Chattanooga, Johnson City and Wilmington that will now be played between April and June 2023.

At the time of accident, husband and country star Vince Gill canceled three weekend shows in North Carolina and Virginia due to the emergency.

Grant is one of five celebrities receiving the annual Kennedy Center Honors this December in Washington, DC. Throughout its 44-year history, the annual Honors Gala has become the highlight of the Washington cultural and society calendar, and its national broadcast on CBS is a high point of the television season. Gladys Knight and U2 are among the other musicians being honored in 2022.
