Papa Roach Cancels Tour Dates


Papa Roach has postponed a handful of tour dates due to frontman Jacoby Shaddix's health. The singer is scheduled to have surgery on his vocal cords in the coming weeks and the band has now shelved a string of dates including appearances in Oregon, Illinois and Alaska.

"This week, Jacoby was advised by his doctors and vocal specialists to have surgery on his vocal cord and to give his vocal muscles enough time to heal before PAPA ROACH resumes their current touring schedule in September. 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," the band wrote in a statement.

"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."

Affected dates:

Aug. 11 - Roseburg OR. Douglas County Fair
Aug. 19 - Carterville, IL. Moonstock 2017
Aug. 25 - Palmer, AK. Alaska State Fair
