Doctors Order Vocal Rest For Scott Weiland
The band was forced to cancel a concert in Cincinnati, Ohio on Tuesday (13Sep11) after Weiland fell ill.
He then visited experts at the University of Cincinnati Health Voice and Swallowing Center, where he was diagnosed with "tremendously inflamed" vocal cords and told not to speak or sing.
Weiland was warned he risks permanent damage if he continues to perform, prompting the band to call off the two remaining shows on their summer (11) tour.
A statement from a Dr. Sid Khosla reads, "Today myself, Dr. Eva Van Leer and Dr. Keith Casper consulted with Mr. Weiland. Upon a video stroboscopy, we determined his left vocal cord has likely scarring and his right vocal cord is tremendously inflamed.
"With such a heavy concert schedule and vocal activity, we determined that Mr. Weiland could potentially run the risk of a vocal haemorrhage or suffer permanent damage, hence putting him on complete vocal rest."
The Plush hitmakers have axed gigs in Louisville, Kentucky and Council Bluffs, Iowa. The group's next scheduled date is the 5 November (11) in Concho, Oklahoma.
