Thompson Square Cancels Weekend Shows

Thompson Square has been forced to cancel shows set for this weekend, but it's strictly, as they say, doctor's orders. Keifer Thompson, one-half of the award-winning duo with wife Shawna, has been battling a vocal condition which has become somewhat serious.

In a message to the duo's fans, Keifer says,

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 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.

Keifer adds that the duo eagerly awaits returning to the road.

Show cancellations include Glen Allen, Va., Wednesday night (May 29), and their appearances on Luke Bryan's Dirt Road Diaries Tour from May 30 through June 2 (cities listed below).

May 30 - Canandiagua, N.Y.
May 31 - Hartford, Conn.
June 1  - Camden, N.J.
June 2  - Boston

We at Country Weekly send along our best wishes to Keifer for a complete recovery.
