“We regret to inform you that we will have to cancel the first 2 weeks of our tour that is due to start in San Francisco tomorrow, October 21st. After the last run through Canada, Travis was having problems with his voice which were not clearing up. Normally with a few days rest he has been able to recover, but the problems persisted and he went to see a voice specialist. The doctor ordered him to rest his voice for 2 weeks or he would risk permanent damage. Unfortunately this wipes out a portion of this tour, which we were all very excited to do. We will resume the tour on November 6th at the Majestic Theatre in Detroit. We apologize for the many inconveniences this will likely cause, and we will either reschedule shows or refund all the tickets.”
