Simple Plan is pushing back a lot of their Canadian tour dates this month because their lead singer, Pierre Bouvier has to go into vocal rest and can’t sing for the next 4 weeks.
According to a statement from the band, “Pierre started feeling pain in his vocal cords and consulted his voice doctor. After examination, Pierre was instructed to go on immediate vocal rest. He was also advised to refrain from singing for the next 4 weeks to avoid any permanent vocal cord damage. We absolutely hate to not be able to play these shows and have to reschedule.”
“We look forward to seeing you at the shows next March and we thank you all for always supporting us, even in difficult situations like this.”
That means their show in Toronto that was supposed to happen next Friday (November 18) at the Air Canada Center will now be on March 14.
Here are the new dates that have been confirmed:
March 11 – London Music Hall – London
March 13 – Centre Videotron – QC
March 14 – Air Canada Centre – Toronto
March 15 – Bell Centre – Montreal
The band notes that All Time Low will not be able to join on the new dates but they are working on “finding a new support act.”
