Justin Timberlake continues to struggle with his bruised vocal cords. The singer had to postpone his tour and cancel the scheduled concerts after doctors ordered him to take rest. The canceled concerts are expected to be rescheduled to early next year.

In a post on his official Instagram page, Timberlake apologized to the fans for canceling the tour. His bruised vocal cords are healing, but the doctors have asked him not to sing for another month. The singer said that he is “really sorry,” and expressed his desire to get back on the stage as soon as possible. He promised that he is doing all that he can to make sure that this happens at the earliest.

Timberlake thanked his fans for their understanding and for the outpouring of love and support he has been getting. He also said that he has read all the posts by the fans online and appreciates their support. The singer hopes to come back stronger than before when the concerts begin again.

This is not the first time that Timberlake has had to cancel his concerts. The trouble began in October when he had to postpone his show at Madison Square Garden in New York City, Entertainment Tonight reported. The singer later had to postpone his concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Timberlake didn’t reveal any details about the rescheduled dates of his canceled concerts. In his social media post, he said that he will make that announcement sometime in the future. According to Variety, the concerts that got canceled include stops at Kansas City, Indianapolis, St. Louis, Omaha, Philadelphia and Buffalo. The tour is reportedly set to relaunch after the holidays, starting with the Jan. 4 concert in Washington, D.C. Most of the canceled concerts are said to be postponed to February and March.

The actual rescheduled dates are yet to be announced officially. Timberlake may make that announcement on social media after his vocal cords heal completely, and after his doctors confirm that it is safe for him to get back on the tour.

The bruising of the vocal cords is a common work hazard that many singers face. Previously, Demi Lovato had to postpone her show in London, which was supposed to be held in June. “Hips Don’t Lie” singer Shakira also had to postpone her El Dorado World Tour that was supposed to begin in December 2017 because of vocal cord issues.
