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. Hope he gets better soon! Details below.
He has been diagnosed with definitive vocal cord edema (swelling) and a vocal cord hemorrhage.
â€œI know this sucks but after many months of recording Iâ€™ve temporarily damaged my voice,â€ Maxwell said in the statement. â€œIâ€™ve had issues before during other tours, but was able to power through. Iâ€™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 BLACKSUMMERSâ€™NIGHT trilogy is released.â€
In 2009 Maxwell released BLACKsummersâ€™night after a seven year absence. The album became platinum-certified and earned Maxwell two Grammy Awards.
â€œMy deepest apologies to those who made the effort to try and see the show,â€ the statement continued. â€œLove and Thanks, Mâ€
