THOMPSON SQUARE FORCED TO CANCEL THIS WEEKEND’S SHOWS DUE TO ILLNESS
NASHVILLE, TN – Reigning ACM & CMA Vocal Duo of the Year Thompson Square has been forced to cancel this weekend’s shows due to illness.
In a heartfelt message to fans today, Keifer Thompson states:
“It breaks my heart to tell our fans today that we must cancel our upcoming concert appearances this weekend. What many of you may not know is that I have recently been battling a very serious vocal condition. I was urged by doctors to cancel Thompson Square's appearances and go on complete vocal rest several weeks ago; however, neither Shawna nor I wanted to disappoint our fans, which we love and respect dearly. So we chose to continue performing our scheduled shows while I remained completely silent offstage in an effort to heal. Unfortunately, at this time, I have been ordered by doctors to take the next step and to cancel this weekend’s shows in an effort to heal internally.
Words cannot express how devastated we both are to bring this news to our fans. Our fans are on our minds every moment of every day – you are the reason we're here and the reason we get to live our dream of making music for a living. We hope that you will understand what a difficult decision this has been and know that we can't wait to get back out on the road and make it up to you as soon as possible.”
Show cancellations include tonight’s headlining show in Glen Valley, VA at Innsbrook After Hours at the Snagajob Pavilion as well as Thompson Square’s appearances on the following Luke Bryan Dirt Road Diaries tour stops. Those shows will go on as planned with Cole Swindell now appearing.
May 30 - Canandiagua, NY
May 31 - Hartford, CT
June 1 - Camden, NJ
June 2 - Boston, MA
Thompson Square is a current CMT Music Award and Teen Choice Award nominee. The duo’s new album, JUST FEELS GOOD, is in stores now.
