All About That Rest: Meghan Trainor cancels tour after hemorrhaging vocal cord


Meghan Trainor has cancelled the remainder of her tour after suffering from a hemorrhaged vocal cord. The Nantucket native, who hit the mainstream with 2014 single “All About That Bass,” apologized to her fans via Instagram yesterday, while also revealing a bout with bronchitis.

Trainor says she is “devastated, scared and sorry.”

Among the cancelled shows are an August 15 show at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, August 22 at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines, September 4 at the Champlain Valley Exposition in Vermont, and a September 7 date at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.


“To all my fans,” she writes, “I was being careful and taking precautions, but I have hemorrhaged my vocal cord again. I got bronchitis & have been coughing a lot & that pushed it over the edge. Sadly, I will need to cancel the remainder of my tour and get surgery to finally fix this once and for all.”

She also apologized to her opening acts, Charlie Puth and Life of Dillon, for nixing the tour.
