Taylor SwiftIt's a disappointing day for Taylor Swift fans. The teen queen was forced to cancel the next three shows on her Speak Now World Tour, slotted for this weekend. The Friday evening show in Charlotte, North Carolina and both Saturday and Sunday stints in Atlanta, Georgia are postponed until the Fall.

The singer-songwriter is battling bronchitis, and her physician has advised her to cancel her upcoming performances in order to rest.

"It breaks my heart to miss out on this weekend's shows with my friends in Charlotte and Atlanta," Swift says. "I would never cancel if I thought I was physically able to perform these shows. I am so sorry to the fans, but I look forward to seeing you when we come back through your towns, which we will do."
