If you were expecting to make it one of Maxwell's shows this year, you will have to reschedule that for another year. According to his reps, doctors have advised him to not take the stage for his upcoming tour. Statement below:
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.
