John Mayer Takes Indefinite Hiatus; Cancels Tour
GRAMMY Award winner John Mayer has released today that he is on an indefinite hiatus. Taking to his Tumblr this morning, he explained to his fans that his recently removed granuloma has resurfaced, yet again. John posted this message on his page:
“During rehearsal on Tuesday, it came to mind that I should see my throat doctor because something didn’t feel/sound right. I went in for a visit on Wednesday and a scope of my vocal cords revealed that the granuloma has grown back where it had mostly healed. This is bad news. Because of this, I have no choice but to take an indefinite break from live performing. Though there will be a day when all of this will be behind me, it will sideline me for a longer period of time than I care to have you count down.”
Mayer’s forthcoming album “Born and Raised” will be released as scheduled on May 22 but a normal promotional tour is no longer in the works. Instead, he will focus his efforts on material for a new album to be announced.
In conjunction with his indefinite hiatus, his appearance at SXSW will also be cancelled according to VH1.
