"Due to a temporary injury, Paula will be unable to perform at tonight's show in Denver, Colorado. After a short rest and recovery, Paula is excited to continue on the Total Package Tour as originally scheduled," the statement read. Sources tell ET that Abdul's injury is a strained muscle that makes dancing not possible and that she just needs rest.
Abdul, who is currently on the Total Package Tour with New Kids on the Block and Boyz II Men, also took to social media to thank her fans for understanding.
"Thank you to all my fans for your constant love & support. I treasure each & every one of you & I'm most grateful for your understanding," she tweeted. "I hope to come back to Denver soon, and will miss you while I recover. Love, Paula."
