Bittersweet news for fans of country starlet Kasey Chambers this afternoon, with confirmation that her November/December tour has been postponed on doctor’s orders.
According to a statement released by her publicists this afternoon, Kasey has been “diagnosed with small nodules and inflammation on her vocal cords, and therefore advised by specialists to severely lessen her workload”.
This means the postponement of the tour to February/March next year and the cancellation of her appearance at the upcoming Queenscliff Music Festival. It’s hoped, however, that the elongated period of rest will lessen the risk of Kasey having to undergo surgery.
“I’m so disappointed that I will have to postpone the Bittersweet Tour due to 2 small nodules on my vocal chords,” Kasey said in the statement. “Doctors have advised that I lighten my workload considerably for a little while to give them a chance to heal, but luckily, if I take their advice, no surgery is needed. Thank you for the support over the last year, with some rest and ‘no yelling at the kids to clean their room’, I’ll be back on track in no time!”
