John Mayer Cancels Tour Due to Throat Problems

John Mayer has revealed that his throat condition has remained, and announced on his Tumblr blog on Friday (Mar. 9), “I have no choice but to take an indefinite break from live performing.” Mayer’s label, Columbia Records, released a statement on Friday confirming the cancellations.

Mayer did confirm that “Born And Raised,” his fifth studio album, is still on track for a May 22 release through Columbia Records. However, the spring tour planned in support of the new full-length, which was set to kick off on April 9 in Bloomington, Ind., is no longer.

In the blog post, Mayer writes that he revisited his throat doctor earlier this week after “something didn’t feel/sound right” during a rehearsal on Tuesday. “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,” the singer-songwriter wrote.

Last September, Mayer was forced to postpone the fall 2011 release of “Born and Raised” and cancel a handful of tour dates after being diagnosed with granuloma. On Friday, Mayer wrote that this latest setback will require “another surgery and a very long chemically-imposed period of silence.”
