Hard rockers Avenged Sevenfold have cancelled the remainder of their U.S. tour because frontman MATT SHADOWS has lost his voice.
Shadows has battled longterm voice fatigue and underwent surgery several years ago to correct an ongoing medical issue. He had to cancel a performance at Britain's Reading Festival in August (08) for the same reason.
Now doctors have ordered him to rest his voice for a month - forcing the band to sit out the rest of its American dates. The tour will resume in October (08) in Japan.
