John Mayer has cancelled all his upcoming shows and delayed the release of his new album Born And Raised after being diagnosed with a serious throat disease that will put his career on hold for an uncertain period of time. Mayer is suffering from granuloma, which means he has a nodule near his vocal chords which has the potential to become cancerous.
In a statement Mayer said:
This is a temporary setback, though I’m not sure how long or short a period of time it will be. I’ve got the best doctors in the country looking after me and I will be singing and touring again as soon as I get the all clear. Until then I’ll be spending time writing and composing more music and kicking an empty soup can around the West Village.
