Unfortunately it’s true. Morgan Wallen announced his Philadelphia Show at Citizens Bank Park for June 17 has been postponed for vocal rest.
“I got some bad news from my doctors at the Vanderbilt Voice Center yesterday, after taking 10 days of vocal rest,” Wallen said. “I performed three shows last weekend in Florida, and by the third one, I felt terrible. So I went in and got scoped yesterday and they told me that I re-injured my vocal chords and that I have vocal fold trauma. Their advice is that I go on vocal rest for six weeks. So that’s what I’m going to do.”
“They told me that if I do this the right way, that I’ll get back to 100%. And they also said that if I don’t listen and I keep singing and I’ll permanently damage my voice. So for the longevity of my career, this is just the choice I had to make. I hate it. But I love you guys and I appreciate all the support that you always give me.
“We’re working on rescheduling all the dates during this time frame. We’ve almost got that done, but some of ’em are pending, so I’ll keep you updated. I won’t be able to make these festivals that I have during this timeframe, but we are gonna make those right in the next year.”
Morgan Wallen also canceled his ACM appearance and previously canceled four shows, the first of which came right at showtime in Oxford, Mississippi on April 23. That is where he canceled les than 30 minutes before he was about to hit the stage. He said he will be back and better than ever and said God Bless.
