Vocal cord issues have sidelined another top-notch singer.
Maxwell has canceled his specialized summer tour because he’s developed definitive vocal cord edema and a vocal cord hemorrhage. The soul singer has been advised by doctors to go on complete vocal rest.
Maxwell was slated to play July 27-28 at Philips Arena as part of a three-city tour – Los Angeles and Newark, N.J., were the others – where he planned to perform some of his albums in their entirety.
“I’ve temporarily damaged my voice. I’ve had issues before during other tours, but was able to power through. I’ve been strongly advised to rest and undergo treatment,” Maxwell said in a statement.
