Papa Roach unable to perform at Douglas County Fair
ROSEBURG, Ore. -- For the second year in a row a concert headliner at the Douglas County Fair has canceled a scheduled performance.
The fair announced Saturday the cancellation of August 11 headliner Papa Roach.
"Ticket buyers will be contacted via email and/or phone with further details regarding their existing order," fair officials said in a news release.
They say the fair is currently working on finding a replacement band to fill the date and should have an announcement on Monday, August 7.
"It is with a heavy heart that we are forced to cancel our upcoming shows in the Oregon, Illinois and Alaska this month due to the need for Jacoby Shaddix to have immediate vocal cord surgery and rest," an agency press release for Papa Roach said. "This week Jacoby was advised by his doctors to have surgery on his vocal cord to give his vocal muscles enough time to heal before Papa Roach resumes their current touring schedule. Jacoby had a similar surgery about five years ago.
"Fortunately, the diagnosis was made early and full recovery should be soon. The vocal cords are a muscle and like any athlete, muscles can get injured in the course of their profession and we appreciate your understanding this diagnosis. We wish to thank all of our fans in advance for your prayers and good wishes. We know some of you had travel plans and we will return next year to perform for you."
At the Douglas County Fair in 2016, the band Seether canceled its scheduled performance due to a band member's illness.
