"I have a tracheal infection but my rescheduled date will be announced," Chenoweth tweeted June 17, the night of her original Minneapolis engagement at the State Theatre. The Tony winner was also forced to cancel her June 16 Chicago concert at the Cadillac Palace Theatre and the June 20 engagement at Nashville's Andrew Jackson Hall.

Chenoweth's rescheduled performances follow:

As previously announced, Chenoweth's tour hits 19 cities, including her hometown of Broken Arrow, OK (June 24), where the mainstage at the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center will be renamed in her honor.

On the concert tour, Chenoweth performs tunes from her latest album, "Some Lessons Learned," as well as songs heard on the Fox hit series "Glee" and in the Stephen Schwartz-musical Wicked (she originated the role of Galinda).
