Dickey Betts Sidelined By Illness
Betts, 69, has been announcing via his Facebook page the cancelation of dates and now his manager, David Spero, posted an update on Friday with some good news and bad news for fans.
He wrote, First the good news. Doctors have finished testing all of the biopsies they took from Dickey in a previous procedure. All of them came back negative for cancer of the bladder and prostate.
"Dickey is undergoing another procedure today to give him some relief from the problems that put those tests in motion. He is getting stronger every day and should resume touring next month.
"That being said, the May performance at Wild Bills is postponed (again) and a new date will be announced soon. Thanks for your interest in his health and your patience. I will update this situation again next week." Facebook link for future updates.
