Reigning ACM & CMA Vocal Duo of the Year Thompson Square has been forced to cancel this weekend’s shows due to illness.

In a heartfelt message to fans today, Keifer Thompson states:

“It breaks my heart to tell our fans today that we must cancel our upcoming concert appearances this weekend. What many of you may not know is that I have recently been battling a very serious vocal condition.  I was urged by doctors to cancel Thompson Square’s appearances and go on complete vocal rest several weeks ago; however, neither Shawna nor I wanted to disappoint our fans, which we love and respect dearly.  So we chose to continue performing our scheduled shows while I remained completely silent offstage in an effort to heal.  Unfortunately, at this time, I have been ordered by doctors to take the next step and to cancel this weekend’s shows in an effort to heal internally.

Words cannot express how devastated we both are to bring this news to our fans.  Our fans are on our minds every moment of every day – you are the reason we’re here and the reason we get to live our dream of making music for a living.  We hope that you will understand what a difficult decision this has been and know that we can’t wait to get back out on the road and make it up to you as soon as possible.”

Show cancellations include tonight’s headlining show in Glen Valley, VA at Innsbrook After Hours at the Snagajob Pavilion as well as Thompson Square’s appearances on the following Luke Bryan Dirt Road Diaries tour stops. Those shows will go on as planned with Cole Swindell now appearing.

May 30 –   Canandiagua, NY
May 31 –   Hartford, CT
June 1  –   Camden, NJ
June 2  –   Boston, MA

Thompson Square is a current CMT Music Award and Teen Choice Award nominee. The duo’s new album, JUST FEELS GOOD, is in stores now.

  1. Better to do this now and disappoint than to permanently damage your throat for a lifetime. We being my family and friends are all musicians or spouses of so we know if your not performing your not breathing……….Short time compared to a lifetime weigh it out and just be real.Thats what your fans ask maybe not your promoter or record label but we the people that appreciate true talent and honesty will be there when your better.God Bless you both.

  2. hope you fill better to here ya’ll sing togather. i will keep ya’ll in my prayers.

  3. Hope you feel better soon. Your song “If I don’t have you”, helped me explain to my husband how much he helped me get through this past ten months. We unexpectedly lost our son to liver disease at the young age of 29. Then eight months later when I lose my only brother. He has been the rock in my life. Thank you for such wonderful and beautiful songs.

  4. Sending you an Express delivery of best wishes for a speedy recovery. Get better soon ~ there is still much job ahead of you! GOD SPEED, Karen
