As many, including myself entered the Spirit Fest on this past Saturday, featuring Erykah Badu and D’Angelo, we learned that D’Angelo would not be performing due to an illness. However; the talented Raheem Devaughn stepped in and delivered a great set.
Reportedly, he’s been hospitalized for a “medical emergency” but no one has revealed exactly what the emergency was or is.
“It’s serious, but he should be OK,” the Tribune says D’Angelo’s agent told a House of Blues executive, while Live Nation said the singer “expresses his sincere regret due to this unfortunate circumstance.”
D’Angelo also canceled his appearance in Baltimore this weekend and headliner of the show, Erykah Badu, teamed up with Common to fill that slot. His upcoming show in Chicago tomorrow at the House of Blues is now canceled. And his shows in New York and San Diego last week were also cancelled. His Friday show in San Francisco is still on…for now.
