Chris Young has been placed on vocal rest, forcing him to postpone upcoming shows on the Liquid Neon Tour.  Young’s camp released the following statement and information about the postponed dates:

For precautionary reasons, Chris Young’s doctor has placed him on vocal rest for the remainder of the week, forcing the postponement of this weekend’s shows. The following Liquid Neon Tour shows with special guests Thomas Rhett and Joanna Smith will be rescheduled: December 6th at the Von Braun Center Arena in Huntsville, Alabama, December 7th at the Johnny Mercer Theatre in Savannah, Georgia and December 8th at the Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Auditorium in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

“I hate to disappoint everybody but my voice is pretty ragged out,” wrote Chris in a statement to his fans. “Thanks for understanding and I look forward to seeing y’all next year.” For Chris, early 2013 will include recording songs for his new album and a heavy year of touring.

Tickets for the postponed shows will be honored at the make-up dates. If ticket holders are unable to attend the rescheduled dates, refunds are available at the point of purchase. We apologize for the inconvenience.

We’re wishing Chris Young a speedy recovery!
