Illness Sidelines McPhee to Start Idol Tour

by at . Comments

One fan said she was "bummed out" about the news. And we'd imagine a large number of other concert goers feel the same way.

Nevertheless, as finalists from American Idols Live kicked off their U.S. tour Wednesday, this season's runner-up, Katharine McPhee, was nowhere to be seen. She was sidelined with severe bronchitis and laryngitis.

Those in Manchester - at the Verizon Wireless Arena - won't get to see this talent perform. Organizers announced that McPhee's doctor, Sean Nassari, ordered "total voice rest."

The starlet, of course, didn't want to let down her fans. In a statement, she said she was disappointed she couldn't perform, but "I need to follow my doctor's orders to recuperate and reunite with the rest of the Idols."

A Healthy McPhee

Amen, Kat. Feel better soon.
