Elle King Slips Down The Stairs At Home, Cancels Shows
Elle King had to cancel some radio station shows this week, and she took to her Twitter to explain to fans why she could not do the shows; she fell down the stairs at her home and suffered a concussion.
Elle posted a lengthy post on Twitter writing yesterday (12/8), “Just wanted to check in with a quick update and apologize to my fans in Tampa, Detroit, and Seattle. I share your disappointment that I had to cancel my radio shows this week. No one ever wants to pull out of shows, especially me. I live for performing.” She continued, “I slipped down the stairs making a bottle in the middle of the night. Knocked my ass out, resulting in a concussion.”
She added, “I tried to push through and play 3 shows but travel, lights all of it only exasperated things. I’d like to thank the artists that stepped in and filled my slots, as well as the radio stations for understanding and continued support.”
King ended the post, saying, “I wish you all happy and healthy holidays, and I can’t wait to get back out next year and sing with you soon.”
Several fans and friends reacted to the post, including Cole Swindell, who wrote, “Glad you’re ok! Rest up.” One fan responded, “Christ. Take care of yourself! Feel better!” Another fan said, “Take care of yourself; fans will understand merry Christmas and Happy New Year.”
Elle will release her first country album on January 27, 2023. As we recently wrote, the title of the album, Come Get Your Wife, does not reflect the song’s names on the project. Instead, it’s something a guy yelled out over her at a bar, and she never forgot it.
Elle told us, “Even the album title, it comes from something some a–hole said to my partner one night. Something thrown off in a bar, intended to put me in my place… and he probably didn’t think twice about it. But I did.”
