John Mayer goes on indefinite hiatus due to vocal cord injury
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (MAY 19, 2009) (HOLLYWOODTV) - John Mayer has officially confirmed that he's not only canceling his upcoming tour, but also going on an indefinite hiatus, due to his problematic vocal cord injury. The singer broke the news on his blog earlier today, saying that he had a granuloma on his vocal cord last fall which has now grown back. Mayer writes: "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 elaborates about the nature of his condition: "a granuloma forms and continues to snowball because it's in a spot where the vocal cords hit together and there's no way to really give it a chance to heal without a good stretch of time and some pretty intensive treatment."
