Morgan Wallen has postponed six weeks of shows, including his May 19-20 concerts at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, due to a vocal cord injury.

“I performed three shows last weekend in Florida and by the third one, I felt terrible,” Wallen said in a video shared on Instagram, May 9. “So I went in and got scoped yesterday, and they told me that I reinjured my vocal cords and that I have vocal fold trauma. Their advice is that I go on vocal rest for six weeks, so that’s what I’m gonna do.”

A message on the MetLife Stadium website said the new dates “will be announced soon.” (MAY 23 UPDATE: The dates will be on May 17-18, 2024, with Parker McCollum, Ernest and Bailey Zimmerman opening; visit ticketmaster.com).

The next Wallen concert that is still scheduled to take place is June 22 at Wrigley Field in Chicago.

Wallen also says in the video: “They told me that if I do this the right way, that I’ll get back to 100 percent, and they also said that if I don’t listen and I keep singin’, then I’ll permanently damage my voice.

“So for the longevity of my career, this is just the choice I had to make. I hate it. But I love you guys and I appreciate all the support that you always give me.”
