From the Alaska State Fair :
Papa Roach Concert Canceled Due to Vocal Cord Surgery
We received word that Papa Roach has had to cancel their performance at the Alaska State Fair as Jacoby Shaddix, lead vocalist is to have immediate vocal cord surgery and rest. We wish Jacoby a speedy recovery.
Our team is exploring possibilities for a replacement concert, as well as addressing other logistics that arise when there is an unexpected show cancellation. We will share details on that plan as soon as it is finalized, and we thank you for your patience and understanding.
Papa Roach shared the following statement: “It is with a heavy heart that we are forced to cancel our upcoming shows in Oregon, Illinois and Alaska this month due to the need for Jacoby Shaddix to have immediate vocal cord surgery and rest. This week Jacoby was advised by his Doctors to have surgery on his vocal cord to give his vocal muscles enough time to heal before Papa Roach resumes their current touring schedule. Jacoby had a similar surgery about five years ago. Fortunately, the diagnosis was made early and full recovery should be soon. The vocal cords are a muscle and like any athlete, muscles can get injured in the course of their profession and we appreciate your understanding this diagnosis. We wish to thank all of our fans in advance for your prayers and good wishes. We know some of you had travel plans and we will return next year to perform for you.”
