El DeBarge Cancels Tour Dates, Goes Into Rehab



On March 5, R&B singer KEM is bringing his "Intimacy" tour to the Fabulous Fox. Ledisi is opening. El DeBarge, riding high on a comeback album, Second Chance, was scheduled to be opening the tour as well -- but instead, the singer announced yesterday that he was checking himself into rehab. In a statement, he said:

"I hate to disappoint my fans but it is necessary for me to take the time to work on me so that I may continue to share my music and my story with everyone. I thank everyone in advance for their prayers and well wishes and hope that you will respect my privacy during this time."

Musiq Soulchild will replace El DeBarge on the tour. Tickets are $39.50, $49.50 and $59.50.
