AceShowbiz - Morgan Wallen has been forced to cancel six more weeks of his tour dates. The "Wasted on You" crooner shared the announcement after visiting the Vanderbilt Voice Center in Nashville.
"I'm just gonna go ahead and get straight to it. I got some bad news from my doctors at the Vanderbilt Voice Center yesterday," the 29-year-old said in an Instagram video shared on Tuesday, May 9. "After taking 10 days of vocal rest I performed three shows last weekend in Florida and by the third one I felt terrible."
Noting that he has been diagnosed with "vocal fold trauma," Morgan informed his fans that he was told to go on total vocal rest for six weeks. "They told me that if I do this the right way, I'll get back to 100% and they also said that if I don't listen and I keep singing, then I'll permanently damage my voice," he explained.
"So for the longevity of my career, this is just a choice I had to make," the country star continued. "I hate it. But I love you guys, and I appreciate all the support that you always give me."
Morgan declared that his team is working on rescheduling the affected dates. They include shows at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey; Moody Center in Austin, Texas; as well as Truist Park in Atlanta.
Morgan initially left around 60,000 fans disappointed on April 23 when he axed his concert in Oxford, Mississippi minutes before he was due onstage. Fans were asked to leave the venue with a message being shown on a screen.
"Ladies and gentlemen, unfortunately, Morgan has lost his voice and is unable to perform tonight. Therefore, tonight's show has been cancelled," it read. "Please make your way safely to the stadium exits. Refunds for tonight's event will be available at point of purchase."
