John Mayer To Take ‘Indefinite Break’

10:01 AM Friday 3/9/12 | |

Remember John Mayer’s throat problem and subsequent surgery that forced him to cancel shows last fall? Well, the problem is back, resulting in the guitarist/singer/songwriter to “take an indefinite break from live performing.”

Mayer announced his decision via his website and Tumblr blog, writing “something didn’t feel/sound right” during rehearsals earlier this week, resulting in another trip to the throat doctor.

“I went in for a visit on Wednesday and a scope of my vocal cords revealed that the granuloma has grown back where it had mostly healed. This is bad news. Because of this, I have no choice but to take an indefinite break from live performing. Though there will be a day when all of this will be behind me, it will sideline me for a longer period of time than I care to have you count down.”

Mayer wrote that his upcoming album, Born and Raised, will be released on schedule and that he’ll spend his down time writing his next album.

“I feel really vibrant as a writer at the moment and there’s no reason not to begin the next album project in the time I would have been touring.”

Mayer also predicted he’ll go back under the knife and endure “a very long chemically imposed period of silence.”

Mayer was scheduled to preview his new album during a performance at SXSW. His spring tour was scheduled to begin with two nights in Thackersville, Okla., at the Winstar World Casino March 15-16 and conclude in Phoenix at Comerica Theater May 6.

“I’m completely bummed, especially for all of you who started making plans to see a show,” Mayer wrote. “Nothing feels worse than having to break the stage down before the performance, and I mean nothing. I love this band you were going to hear, I love the guys and girls I work with, and the only thing that stops me from devolving into a puddle of tears is knowing it’s a long life, and the greatest gift in the world is being able to create music no matter what the circumstances. So these are the new circumstances, and I’ll find a way to make it mean something. That’s all you can ever do.”
