John Mayer scraps tour, announces "indefinite break" from performing live
Vocal sensation John Mayer has been forced to scrap his forthcoming U.S. tour due to a recently resurfaced throat condition.
The 'Gravity' superstar was set to hit the road on April 9, but posted a troubling message on his Tumblr account earlier today (March 9) that explained he simply can't go ahead with the string of shows as planned: "I have no choice but to take an indefinite break from live performing."
In October last year, Mayer was ordered to stop performing live in order to recover from battling granuloma and the blog post from this afternoon explains that the condition has now returned:
"I went in for a visit (to the hospital) 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."
His previously delayed fifth studio album, 'Born And Raised', will still be released on May 22, but he will no longer tour in support of the record.
