John Mayer was to start a new tour in promotion of his new CD, "Born And Raised" but he just revealed he has to cancel the tour for more vocal cord surgery.
Mayer had vocal cord surgery last year to remove granuloma that had grown on his throat. After tour rehearsals Tuesday, John went to his doctor as something didn't/feel sound right to him. The doctor revealed that the granuloma had grown back where it had healed.
John released a statement saying that he has to cancel the tour and does not know when he will be able to perform live again. He will take an immediate break from touring and live performing. He advised that this is having an emotional toll on him but still plans to release "Born And Raised" on May 22nd, and plans to write and record more new material. In the future, he will have more vocal cord surgery, but did not announce a timetable for it.
Here is a portion of John's Statement:
Sigh. Amy. Amy. AMY! Amy Winehouse lost her shiz over the weekend either not caring about a performance or being back on the sauce or the powder candy.
Amy first cancelled 2 European dates after her performance but her management team has done the right thing and cancelled her entire tour.
Don't know how many stories we have had on Amy in the past and several of you thought that we were way too harsh about Amy and her addictions, I wonder what you have to say now?
What a talent going to waste. The white Whitney Houston anybody? Hope she says "yes, yes, yes" to rehab soon.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Addiction Is A Losing Game
John Mayer has cancelled the rest of his European tour dates, all which were sold out, and a festival.
It is undisclosed what John has but his next tour date in North Carolina July 16th has not been cancelled so he might be back on the road in about a month or so.
JohnMayer.com released this statement;
"Regrettably, the illness has caused his remaining European shows scheduled through this week to be canceled as well (Amsterdam, Madrid and Manchester). Ticket holders should apply for refund from point of purchase. Mayer is returning home to the States, and a full recovery is expected under a doctor's supervision."
We wish John a speedy recovery and hope he is feeling better soon.-Dr.FB
