Meghan Trainor ‘devastated, scared and sorry’ as she cancels US tour dates through illness

Singer has haemorrhaged her vocal chords

Meghan Trainor has been forced to cancel a series of tour dates after she haemorrhaged her vocal chird for a second time.

Trainor announced the news on Instagram and said that she is “devastated, scared and sorry”.

“To all my fans – 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,” she wrote. “Sadly, I will need to cancel the remainder of my tour and get surgery to finally fix this once and for all.”

Trainor also agologised to her support acts, Charlie Puth and Life of Dillon, for calling time on the tour. Trainor appears on Puth’s new single ‘Marvin Gaye’, which is expected to be Number One on the Official UK Single Chart this week.

The track, which first entered the chart at Number 90 last week on streams alone, climbs a massive 89 places today following its full download release, leading its nearest competitor – Calvin Harris & Disciples’ How Deep Is Your Love (Number Two) – by almost 31,000 combined chart sales.

Trainor went to Number One in the UK with her debut album ‘Title’ earlier this year. The album features her singles ‘All About That Bass’ and ‘Dear Future Husband’.
