Laryngitis Silences Avril Lavigne
Avril Lavigne has been forced to postpone several more shows on her North American tour due to acute laryngitis.
The singer previously canceled shows in Phoenix, San Diego, Anaheim, Calif., and Los Angeles.
Affected dates on Lavigne’s Best Damn Tour include May 6 at the Santa Barbara Bowl and May 7 at HP Pavilion at San Jose in California and May 9 at Spokane Arena and May 10 at Comcast Arena at Everett Events Center in Washington.
Refunds are available at point of purchase.
The singer expressed her regrets about the postponement in a message to fans.
“My sincerest apologies to all of my fans,” she said. “My intention was to complete the rest of the tour, but tonight at sound check in Anaheim, I realized this wasn’t possible.
“Even though I have been resting my voice for days, when I tried to sing nothing came out.”
