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:
For those that were looking forward to new material by John Mayer, you are going to have to wait.
John Mayer has a mass in his throat, a granuloma—an inflamed nodule or tumor-like mass of tissue—near his vocal cords. Because of this, John had to cancel a concert with Tony Bennett in L.A. and the Iheartradio performance in Las Vegas next week.
This also delays his next album titled "Born & Raised" until next year instead of this year, like he was planning.
He will be hanging around the West Village area until he heals, kicking around a can, as he said.
Get well soon John.-DocFB
