LeAnn Rimes was forced to cancel the first show on her tour Friday (Oct. 5) in Wendover, Nev., due to a "massive infection" that sent her to the emergency room.
The singer tweets Saturday, "I feel like I got hit in my right side of my face with a baseball bat. Not a good feeling when I am getting on a plane. For all my fans at Wendover last night, the show will be rescheduled, not a cancelled show. Worst way ever to kick off a tour... under anesthesia and a massive infection. Well, onward and upward. It can only get better from here!!!"
