Miranda Lambert Cancels Calgary Concert Due to Vocal Cord Inflammation
Miranda Lambert has been forced to cancel her Thursday night (July 9) appearance at Calgary Stampede. The singer is being treated for serious inflammation of the vocal cords, and is unable to perform.
The news, while disappointing, was received with understanding by most fans who commented beneath the Calgary Stampede announcement on Facebook. Lambert expressed her disappointment as well, adding that “I’ll be back in Calgary just as soon as I can for all of my Stampede fans.” Later she added a note on her official website.
I can’t believe this is happening. I am sure most of you heard the news about the show in Calgary having to be rescheduled due to my vocal issues. Thanks for all your posts and well wishes, I promise I will do everything to get better quickly! -Miranda
The decision came quickly; a Tuesday afternoon post on her Facebook page urged fans to share “All Kinds of Kinds” photos for a chance to have them on the concert screens. Twelve hours later the performance was canceled.
The concert will be rescheduled, and fans are urged to hold onto their tickets for the new date, which has not yet been announced. Lambert’s next concert isn’t until July 17 in Minot, N.D. At this point there’s no reason to believe treatment and rest won’t heal her up in time for that date, plus others in August. On Aug. 7 the “Smokin’ and Drinkin’” singer is set to headline WE Fest in Detroit Lakes, Minn.
The reigning CMA Female Vocalist of the Year has been playing festivals for most of the summer. Her official tour begins in the fall. The Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars tour will include RaeLynn, Ashley Monroe, Clare Dunn and Courtney Cole. For the past year Lambert has talked about taking an active role in helping new female artists break into country music.
