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.’

In another instance of summer tour plans gone awry, platinum-selling and Grammy-winning soul singer Maxwell has postponed a portion of his summer tour until 2011.

The singer’s label issued a statement today citing venue scheduling conflicts on the latter part of the tour, which was to feature Grammy-nominated R&B artist Melanie Fiona. Those dates had been added onto Maxwell’s ongoing arena tour with Jill Scott earlier this month.

Internet rumors suggest that the cancellation is due to ill will between Maxwell, Jill Scott and featured artist Erykah Badu the female artists have allegedly been running over their allotted time, upsetting the headliner. In an attempt to quash the gossip, Jill Scott’s publicist released a statement today including the following phrase: “Jill has enjoyed every moment on stage with Maxwell, whom she calls a consummate gentleman and tour mate. She looks forward to sharing the rest of the tour with all of the supportive followers.”

No word regarding the rumors has been issued from any of the other parties.

LiveNation has issued refunds to ticket holders of the postponed dates, which start Jun. 28 in North Carolina’s Greensboro Coliseum. All prior dates will run as planned, including the Jun. 25 and 26 shows at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Rescheduled dates will be announced later in the year.

Hmmmmm interesting… Well I know that Jill and Erykah are pretty good friends, maybe there ganging up on Max. It’s ultimately his tour, they shouldn’t be going over there time…. I’d be pissed too!
