Falling In Reverse frontman Ronnie Radke sick with laryngitis; cancels three more shows on 2023 tour
Falling In Reverse frontman Ronnie Radke, has been forced to cancel three upcoming shows due to laryngitis and inflammation, which require him to rest his voice further to avoid damage to his vocal chords. The affected shows are set to take place in Springfield, MO, Milwaukee, WI, and St. Paul, MN.
Regardless, festivals in Milwaukee and St. Paul will move ahead without the band. Fans with tickets to the Springfield, MO performance should seek refunds at their point of purchase.
The comment left by Radke on the Falling In Reverse Instagram post read:
"As many of you know, I have been having some issues with my voice over the last week. I have now seen a specialist and was diagnosed with laryngitis and inflammation, requiring me to go on further vocal rest to prevent damage to my vocal chords.
I truly hate to do this but will have to cancel our next 3 performances:
May 2 - Springfield, MO • The Shrine Mosque
May 4 - Milwaukee, WI • 93X's Twin City Takeover
May 6 - St. Paul, MN • HOG Fest
The festivals in Milwaukee and St. Paul will go on as planned, just without us performing.
For our headline show in Springfield, refunds are available at your point of purchase.
I love you all and am super thankful for your understanding and support.
I'll see you all on May 27th at Sonic Temple."
This news comes after Radke had to cancel several previous shows due to vocal issues, earlier blaming cold, dry air. However, it appears to be getting worse with time, as vocal problems continue to plague the band.
Assuming his recovery remains on track, Falling In Reverse is set to perform live at Sonic Temple, May 27th.
"'Blames venues cold air' Amalie arena is a 19,000 seat hockey arena that works hard to fight the humidity that Florida brings and keeps it extremely cold and dry, I sang in dry cold artificial air, a singer's nemesis. I canceled so I could continue. Why is this such a huge deal?"
"These fucking idiots think I just cancel 'cause I want to play video games, pay my crew, pay for the buses, piss off the fans, what do you think happens when I cancel? I don't make money. I'm just traveling around losing money."
