Blues singer-songwriter Bonnie Raitt has cancelled a concert in Columbia, SC, for a second time this year.

A family health emergency caused the original cancellation of her March 21 show at The Township in Columbia. The show was then rebooked for October, but it was set at a different venue due to planned renovations at The Township.

The rescheduled October 11 show at the Kroger Center was nixed “due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control,” according to a post on her Web site. “Bonnie Raitt and her band sincerely apologize for having to cancel their Columbia show.”

Tickets for the Kroger Center show will be refunded at the point of purchase. No other October shows have been cancelled.

Raitt is currently on a two-month tour with Taj Mahal that finishes up on September 25 at The Show at Agua Caliente Casino in Rancho Mirage, CA. Management for the two artists recently made headlines when they confronted Live Nation for selling discounted tickets to a Boston concert.

After completing the co-headlining run, Raitt will return to the road for a round of solo dates, beginning October 13 in Asheville, NC, at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium.
