Papa Roach Suspends Tour - Jacoby To Undergo Surgery

Multi-platinum rockers Papa Roach have been forced to cancel the remainder of their scheduled dates on the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival, which kicked off last week in Kansas City. Lead singer Jacoby Shaddix has been diagnosed with a nodule on his left vocal chord. At the advice of his physician, he will undergo corrective surgery to remove the nodule and prevent further damage. Following a difficult show in St. Louis the decision was made to suspend the tour.

“It’s no secret that I’ve been having issues with my voice lately. I was hoping to be able to go out there and kill it on this tour by resting and doing vocal exercises, but my voice has just gone out on me. I hate to let our fans down, but unfortunately surgery is the only way to fix it,” Shaddix said. “The last thing we want to do is give our fans less than 100% every night. We know they’ll understand and we’ll be back better than ever.” “It was amazing having Papa Roach on the road with us for the first few UPROAR shows. We’re disappointed that they can’t continue for the rest of the tour, but Jacoby’s health is the priority and we wish him a speedy recovery,” says Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival co-producer John Oakes.

The band apologizes for any inconvenience, but wants to assure fans that Shaddix is expected to make a complete recovery. Touring plans for this fall are not expected to be affected.

    Jacoby - Take care of that throat. Maybe it's a good time to do that hometown story we talked about with Kelly and Jason this spring?? Recall I photoshopped the nipple out. I can be reached at your hometown newspaper. Thanks. Mike Roberts

    Just came back from Tampa's Uproar date. Got pit passes for my birthday specifically to see Papa Roach. There were many of us wearing PapaRoach t-shirts and bandanas anyway as a tribute. I'm only sorry that there wasn't a Papa Roach tent to buy shirts and other band memorabilia. Hurry back Jacoby! It just wasn't the same without you guys.
