“After last night’s show I started losing my voice so I spent the day resting up, talking to my doctor and working through my vocal exercises trying to get better. I really thought I’d be able to take the stage and it kills me to deliver this so close to showtime, but my voice is shot and I am unable to sing.”

All tickets will be refunded at point of purchase. I am so sorry, I promise you guys I tried everything I could,” Wallen wrote.
