Maxwell Cancels Summer Tour, Doctor’s Orders!!

Damn it!! I was going to go to his show in ATL next month… Is Adele contagious? UGH!! Now I don’t really have an excuse to go out there other then to just see the city, never been before.. We’ll see. 

SingersRoom reports the following:

Grammy Award winner Maxwell planned a six-arena tour for this summer, but due to his doctor’s advice, the performances have been cancelled.

In a released statement he said, “I know this sucks but after many months of recording 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. I look forward to hopefully seeing you next on our full fledged tour, when the sequel to the “Blacksummer’s Night” trilogy is released. My deepest apologies to those who made the effort to try and see the show. Love and Thanks, M.”

The soul singer was diagnosed with vocal swelling and hemorrhaging causing him to postpone stage shows in Los Angeles, Atlanta and Newark, starting July 20th. For the first night in each city, Maxwell was scheduled to perform cuts from his 1996 album ‘Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite’ and his 1998 classic ‘Embrya.’ On the second night of the stop, he would of performed his 2001 LP ‘Now,’ and his most recent critically acclaimed album, ‘BLACKsummers’night.’
