Bert McCracken has just been advised to undergo surgery due to the fact that he has developed a node on one of his vocal chords. Consequently, the band has been forced to cancel their shows on all upcoming dates during June and July, including the Van’s Warped Tour. Doctors have recommended treatment as well as rest without singing and are expecting a full recovery. He will be able to sing again in about five weeks.
The band is incredibly disappointed but promised to return to touring in the USA in early September with headlining dates. “Kevin Lyman and the Van’s Warped tour have been amazing supporters of our band and we are truly saddened that we won’t be able to perform on this year’s tour,” states Quinn Allman, The Used’s guitarist. We hope to have new tour details ready for release shortly.
