Country star Ray Price has cancelled a handful of upcoming concerts after checking into hospital with kidney stones. The For the Good Times hitmaker, who earlier this year (13) announced he was winning his pancreatic cancer battle, was admitted to a medical centre in May (13) with severe dehydration, a common side effect associated with chemotherapy and radiation treatment. He was pumped with fluids and allowed to return home, but now the 87 year old's wife, Janie, has revealed her husband is again suffering from ill health and currently unable to perform. In a post on the musician's Facebook.com page, she writes, "So sad to tell you that Ray has been readmitted to hospital. Test results show that the long term dehydration has caused kidney stones to develop and Ray was in severe pain. The Doctors have gotten the pain under control and are now deciding on the best way to remove the stones. "We have canceled all of the June concerts and the Rob Battle Artist Agency (promotions company) is rescheduling the dates. We will post the new dates when all have been confirmed. Ray asked me to thank you all for your love and support and to tell you that your prayers are keeping us both going."
