Miranda Lambert Cancels Multiple Shows For Mandatory Vocal Rest


Hillary Clinton is not the only one feeling under the weather and needing some time off. Country music’s current First Lady Miranda Lambert has got a case of laryngitis or something similar, and has been put on mandatory vocal rest by her crack team of country music doctors. The result is Miranda will miss at least three of her upcoming shows in her native state of Texas.

The “Keeper of the Flame” shows at the at AmericanBank Center in Corpus Christi on September 15th, the Frank Erwin Center in Austin on September 16th, and the San Antonio show at the AT&T Center on the 17th have all been 86’d from the touring itinerary. Brothers Osborne and Kip Moore were scheduled to open the shows. For refunds, fans are being told to return to their original point of purchase. Purchases by phone or internet will be refunded automatically.

This is not the first time Miranda has needed to cancel a show due to vocal rest. Lambert canceled multiple dates in 2012 due to vocal issues, and a Calgary show in 2015 due to vocal cord inflammation. Miranda Lambert also once cancelled an abusive ex-boyfriend in the song “Gunpowder & Lead.”

The Texas dates were the final shows on Miranda’s 23-date Keeper of the Flame tour. Some reports from the tour have remarked on low attendance numbers at certain shows.
