Eddie Money is headed to the operating room for heart surgery.
The “Two Tickets to Paradise” singer, 70, announced on Twitter Tuesday he will be undergoing “a minor, minimally invasive heart valve surgery this week.”
Money added he appreciated the “thoughts and prayers” and looks “forward to getting back on the stage and rockin’ with you all.”
The “Maybe I’m a Fool” singer was experiencing shortness of breath last week, requiring the medical procedure, according to a release from his publicist. But the rocker waited until a break in the touring schedule.
“The doctors preferred the surgery be completed last week, however, Money, ever the consummate showman, did not want to disappoint his fans,” according to the release. He performed his two Memorial Day weekend concerts, in Detroit on Saturday and Sunday at Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino in Maricopa, Arizona.

His shortness of breath prevented him from being able to perform an encore at the end of the Arizona show, however. (Fans, the planned encore was “Shakin.’ “)
Money is expected to be back out on the road performing in mid-June. His next scheduled gig is June 13 at the Weinburg Center for the Arts in Frederick, MD.
Money is the star of the TV reality series, “Real Money,” which follows the daily lives of the rocker, his wife, and their five children.
