Kid Rock postpones Chicagoland show due to strained vocal chords
CHICAGO — Detroit rocker Kid Rock has postponed two upcoming shows on his current concert tour, including one in Chicagoland.
In a statement posted to his website, Kid Rock said he will have to call off two concerts in the St. Louis and Chicago areas due to strained vocal chords.
Kid Rock was originally scheduled to play in Tinley Park, Ill., Sunday night.
“Sorry St Louis and Chicago – Grandpa strained his…..VOCAL CHORDS!!” he wrote on his website.
The rocker says his voice is “simply gone right now” and that he is “disappointed” to have to cancel the shows despite all the planning that went into them.
“Chicago, you have been one of my earliest supporters outside of Detroit and biggest markets since day one, and I will never forget that. I hope everyone who was planning to go still has a great weekend and can make the best of a (expletive) up situation,” he added.
The St. Louis and Chicago shows were the only concerts the musician rescheduled. Kid Rock says he will now play Tinley Park on Sep. 12.
