Toby Keith should be as good as he once was in no time.

But first, the country-music superstar was forced to cancel Thursday's show in Sparta, Wis., while he recovers from surgery to have his gallbladder removed.

His prognosis is apparently excellent, because he'll pick right back up on Friday at the WE Fest in Detroit Lakes, Minn., according to a message on his website.

As for presumably disappointed ticketholders hoping to catch Keith's Live in Overdrive tour this week at Fort McCoy in Sparta, that show has been rescheduled for Aug. 30.

Gretchen Wilson, who was previously scheduled, and other special guests will be performing in Keith's absence Thursday.

A rep for Keith says he's doing fine following today's outpatient procedure--which he underwent less than 24 hours after rocking the audience at Darien Lake Performing Arts Center in western New York.
