Thompson Square has been forced to cancel their scheduled shows this weekend due to illness. The duo issued a heartfelt message to fans, revealing that Keifer Thompson has been battling issues with his voice for several weeks.
“It breaks my heart to tell our fans today that we must cancel our upcoming concert appearances this weekend,” he said. “What many of you may not know is that I have recently been battling a very serious vocal condition. I was urged by doctors to cancel Thompson Square’s appearances and go on complete vocal rest several weeks ago; however, neither Shawna nor I wanted to disappoint our fans, which we love and respect dearly. So we chose to continue performing our scheduled shows while I remained completely silent offstage in an effort to heal. Unfortunately, at this time, I have been ordered by doctors to take the next step and to cancel this weekend’s shows in an effort to heal internally.
“Words cannot express how devastated we both are to bring this news to our fans,” he continued. “Our fans are on our minds every moment of every day – you are the reason we’re here and the reason we get to live our dream of making music for a living. We hope that you will understand what a difficult decision this has been and know that we can’t wait to get back out on the road and make it up to you as soon as possible.”
Show cancellations include their May 30 headlining show in Glen Valley, Virginia as well as stops on Luke Bryan’s Dirt Road Diaries Tour in Hartford, Connecticut, Camden, New Jersey and Boston. Cole Swindell will fill in for the duo on the Dirt Road Diaries Tour.
