Meghan Trainor has been forced to cancel the remainder of her current MTrain tour due to strained vocal cords, ET Online is reporting.
The 21-year-old took to social media to express her disappointment to her fans, saying on Instagram that she is devastated.
“To all my fans – I was being careful and taking precautions, but I have hemorrhaged my vocal cord again. I got bronchitis & have been coughing a lot & that pushed it over the edge. Sadly, I will need to cancel the remainder of my tour and get surgery to finally fix this once and for all. I am devastated, scared, and so sorry. I LOVE touring and seeing your beautiful faces every night. I am determined to do what it takes to get better and come back around stronger than ever. I love you, and thank you for all of your understanding, love and support.”
Meghan also posted an apology to her opening acts, Charlie Puth and Life of Dillon, again on Instagram.
“I’m sorry to my amazing openers that we had to cut it short. @charlieputh @lifeofdillon you guys put on great shows every night with big smiles and I will be forever grateful that you were a part of this experience, even though it was cut too soon. Thank you and your teams for everything.”
Meghan Trainor became a pop megastar in the summer of 2014, when her hit, “All About That Bass,” tore up the charts (despite allegations that the song may have been plagiarized). Meghan hit it big almost literally overnight – but for years, Trainor had been slugging it out, independently releasing three albums and performing in bars and small venues throughout her native Massachusetts and receiving airplay on local radio stations.
After “All About That Bass” hit big, Meghan managed to avoid the dreaded “One-Hit Wonder” label that plagues far too many musicians who come out of nowhere to record giant hits; Meghan has since had three chart-topping singles.
Meghan’s fans are flooding the young singer’s Instagram account with condolences and well-wishes, wishing Trainor a speedy recovery.
“I was looking so forward to this ur my favorite Meghan feel better when the next tour?”
“Hope u get well soon meghan love ya u rock.”
