John Mayer is set to undergo some "intensive treatment" on his vocal cords after cancelling his entire 21-city tour of the United States. The singer took to his Tumblr page last week to break the news to ticketholders, saying he had been advised by a doctor not to perform.
The multi-award winning Blues singer said, "I went in for a visit on Wednesday and a scope of my vocal cords revealed that the granuloma has grown back where it had mostly healed. This is bad news. Because of this, I have no choice but to take an indefinite break from live performing". Mayer, 34, was scheduled to embark on the tour in support of his fifth studio album 'Born and Raised', though it may work out well for fans, with Mayer suggesting he will use the spare time to begin work on the next record. The musician continued, "Somewhere in all of this is another surgery and a very long chemically imposed period of silence.So I hope you'll understand that I have to really pick that date (to resume performing) carefully".
