Maxwell Cancels Tour: “I’ve Been Strongly Advised To Undergo Treatment”

Singer Maxwell has cancelled his shows for the summer due to vocal cord damage. According to a statement released by his reps, doctors have advised the singer/songwriter against taking the stage.

He has been diagnosed with definitive vocal cord edema (swelling) and a vocal cord hemorrhage.

“I know this sucks but after many months of recording I’ve temporarily damaged my voice,” Maxwell said in the statement. “I’ve had issues before during other tours, but was able to power through. I’ve been strongly advised to rest and undergo treatment. I look forward to hopefully seeing you next on our full fledged tour, when the sequel to the BLACKSUMMERS’NIGHT trilogy is released.”

In 2009 Maxwell released BLACKsummers’night after a seven year absence. The album became platinum-certified and earned Maxwell two Grammy Awards.

“My deepest apologies to those who made the effort to try and see the show,” the statement continued. “Love and Thanks, M”

According to the statement refunds are available at the point of purchase and will be made automatically to credit card purchases.

The dates that have been cut short are below.

7/20 – 21 – Los Angeles, CA @ Staples Center

7/27 – 28 – Atlanta, GA @ Phillips Arena

8/3 – 4 Newark, NJ @ Prudential Center
