Meghan Trainor cancels three additional shows ahead of the New York State Fair concert due to a vocal injury, and fans are concerned. According to Syracuse.com, the 21-year-old “Dear Future Husband” singer suffered a vocal cord hemorrhage, causing her to cancel shows on her MTrain tour. This weekend, Trainor had stops in Detroit and Chicago, and has been forced to cancel three shows after postponing a couple others this week (including a stop at the Common Ground Music Festival in Michigan).
Trainor is doing the right thing to take care of herself, and already says that she’s feeling better. She announced her rescheduled dates on Instagram on Monday.
“Her four postponed tour dates have already been rescheduled for Monday, Sept. 7 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT; Wednesday, Sept. 9 at Aragon Ballroom in Chicago; Friday, Sept. 11 at The Fillmore in Detroit; and Sunday, Sept. 13 at Borgata Festival Park in Atlantic City, N.J.”
News that Meghan Trainor canceled additional shows had some fans wondering whether or not she’d be able to resume her tour, or if her injury would require additional down time, but it sounds like she’s getting ready to get back on the road. As of now, she’s still scheduled to perform on Thursday, September 3, on the Chevy Court stage at the NYS Fair.
According to BBC News, Trainor was on “complete vocal rest” for several days in order to heal. Issues with vocal cords can strike at any time, and many performers have canceled show due to issues like Meghan’s. Many of these singers have needed surgery (like Sam Smith), but it sounds like Meghan is going to be okay just taking a few days off.
Meghan Trainor doesn’t cancel shows practically ever, but she does need to follow the doctor’s orders when it comes to her voice — that’s her money maker! As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Trainor was on vocal rest for about two months a couple of years ago because she had polyps on her vocal cords. During that time, the “All About That Bass” singer was afraid she’d never be able to sing again.
“I was like, ‘I’ll never be a pop star. There it goes. Bye-bye,’ ” Trainor recalled.
Of course, Trainor overcame that setback, and seems to be here to stay. She has had several hit singles, a successful album, and has been nominated for a Grammy and an American Music Award.
