Meghan Trainor cancels State Fair show because of vocal cord issue

Publish date:

Minnesota State Fair officials are looking for an act to replace Meghan Trainor, who has canceled her Sept. 1 appearance because she needs surgery to treat a vocal cord hemorrhage, the fair announced Tuesday.

The "All About That Bass" singer took to Instagram to announce that she has canceled the remainder of her tour after getting her second vocal cord hemorrhage of the summer.

She first postponed shows on her MTrain tour in early July when she suffered the first hemorrhage, Billboard notes.

The fair says tickets for her Grandstand concert have been suspended and refunds will be issued from the point of purchase. Tickets bought with a credit card will be automatically refunded, while tickets purchased by cash or check will be returned by mail.

If ticket holders have any questions, they're asked to call the fair at 651-288-4427.
