The 73-year-old singer said in a statement Tuesday that she has to reschedule the show at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace after driving her bus from Detroit to the West Coast for concerts.

She recently performed in Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, California, and Oakland, California.

Franklin wrote: "I thank all of my fans, friends and supporters who bought tickets. I hope to see you all soon."
