Miranda Lambert has been forced to cancel a performance due to an issue with her vocal cords.
The country star was scheduled to perform at the Calgary Stampede in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, on July 9. According to a statement posted on the rodeo and concert festival’s Facebook page, Lambert was forced to cancel her appearance due to “serious inflammation of her vocal cords.”
“I’m so sorry that I can’t be at Stampede this week,” Lambert said, “but I’ll be back in Calgary just as soon as I can for all of my Stampede fans.”
Paul Rosenberg, chief operating officer of the Calgary Stampede, reassured fans some sort of resolution would ensue.
“We understand that this news is disappointing for fans,” he said. “We will know more about rescheduling the concert later.” Those who purchased tickets to the concert are being asked to keep them, as it is planned to be rescheduled in the weeks to come. Updates about the new date will be posted on the event’s website.
Lambert’s husband, Blake Shelton, is still set to perform at the same event on July 10. Her next scheduled show is currently set for July 17 at the North Dakota State Fair. Although she has a handful of dates left on her current Platinum Tour, Lambert will have a few weeks of rest before her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour kicks off in late September.
Updates to Miranda Lambert’s touring schedule and a full list of upcoming dates are available on her official website.
