PAPA ROACH SUSPENDS SOUTH AMERICAN TOUR
Multi-platinum rockers Papa Roach have been forced to suspend their series of South American tour dates set to begin on August 7th in San Paulo, Brazil due to lead singer Jacoby Shaddix’s strained vocal chords.
Shaddix has been battling vocal issues since being diagnosed with a nodule on his left vocal chord in August 2012. At the advice of his physician, he has been put on strict vocal rest.
In a personal message to their fans, the band apologized for any inconvenience and assured them Shaddix is expected to make a complete recovery.
The band plans to reschedule the South American dates for next year.
Tickets will be refunded at point of sale, more information will be released very soon.
Papa Roach has sold upwards of 10 million albums worldwide, boasts two Grammy nominations, and an MTV VMA nomination. The band has achieved legendary status with repeated chart topping hits over the last decade, specifically: eleven top 10 rock hits, seven top 10 alternative hits, and the claim of the Most Played Alternative Song of the Decade (BDS) with their breakthrough single "Last Resort."
Papa Roach has been on some of the most successful rock tours in recent years, including a co-headlining tour with Stone Sour and performances at major UK festivals such as Download.
