Justin Timberlake postpones tour dates

The pop star has been ordered to rest his voice

Justin Timberlake has cancelled two California dates on his FutureSex/LoveShow tour in order to rest his voice.

The pop star was ordered by a doctor to take a break from singing to help his strained vocal chords recuperate from his performance at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards and his rigorous touring schedule.

He was originally set to perform in Sacramento, California on Monday and in San Jose, California on Wednesday. He has now rescheduled the shows for September 23 in San Jose and September 25 in Sacramento.
