Country singer Miranda Lambert was forced to postpone Thursday's scheduled concert in Calgary, Alberta, due to "serious inflammation" of her vocal cords. The 31-year-old singer was scheduled to perform at the Scotiabank Saddledome, but less than 24 hours before the show, news broke that the singer would not perform.
Lambert's physician advised her to skip the concert because of her vocal cords, E! Online reported. "I'm so sorry that I can't be at Stampede this week, but I'll be back in Calgary just as soon as I can for all of my Stampede fans," Lambert wrote on her website. She also took to Twitter and Facebook to announce the news.
Fortunately, fans who purchased tickets still will be able to visit Stampede Park between Thursday and Sunday -- the remaining dates for Calgary's famed Stampede -- and still be able to see a rescheduled Lambert concert at a later date. “We will know more about rescheduling the concert later; in the meantime, we hope that fans use their tickets for admission to Stampede and enjoy all that we have to offer -- including live country music at Nashville North,” Paul Rosenberg, chief operating officer of the Stampede said in a statement.
Ticketmaster is expected to provide details on ticket refunds and concert rescheduling.
Meanwhile, Lambert's husband, singer Blake Shelton, will perform as scheduled, Daily Mail reported. His concert will take place in the Saddledome on Friday night.
Lambert and Shelton met in 2005 when they were paired for the “CMT 100 Greatest Duets” concert. They dated for five years before marrying in 2011.
