If you had tickets to one of the Morgan Wallen concerts that got pushed back when he went on doctor-ordered vocal rest, you’re in luck.
The biggest act in country music took to social media this evening to announce make up dates for 10 of the 12 shows postponed during his six week break after sustaining vocal cord injuries while on his sold out One Thing At A Time tour.
Of course, we all remember the now-infamous Oxford, Mississippi show that was cancelled just minutes before Morgan was scheduled to go on stage, after Ernest and Hardy had played, which started this string of cancellations.
He did briefly return to the stage after a 10 day vocal rest with a run of shows in Florida, but more issues set in, so he later posted a soft spoken video to social media explaining what had happened, and that although he hated it, taking a break was the only course of action.
“So I went in and got scoped yesterday, and they told me that I reinjured my vocal cords, and that I have vocal fold-something. Their advice is that I go on vocal rest for six weeks, so that’s what I’m gonna do.
They told me that if I do this the right way, that I’ll get back to 100%. And they also said that if I don’t listen and keep singing, then I’ll permanently damage my voice. So for the longevity of my career, this is just the choice I had to make.
I hate it, but I love you guys, and I appreciate all the support you always give me. I’ll see you soon, and I’ll be back better than ever. God bless you.”
It looks like all is on track for Wallen to get back in the saddle with the announcement of these tour dates.
There’s still two updates to come, as I can imagine rescheduling a tour of this size has to be an absolute nightmare, but hopefully some of the fans fired up about this will be happy that Morgan appears to be healing up and the new dates are starting to roll in.
