Amy Grant concert postponed, 4 other performances scheduled at Saenger
Pop and contemporary Christian singer-songwriter Amy Grant's concert scheduled for Oct. 1 at the Hattiesburg Saenger Theater has been postponed.
Grant's manager announced her performances in September and October will be rescheduled as the singer continues recovering from a concussion she sustained in a bicycling accident in July.
A new concert date will be scheduled for spring or summer 2023.
Tickets for Grant's show will be honored on the new date.
"Amy is getting stronger every day," her manager Jennifer Cooke said in a news release. "Just as she did after her heart surgery, we are amazed at how fast she heals. 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."
The Saenger has three other shows coming to the theater in September and October.
