Papa Roach Leave Uproar Festival For Medical Reasons
Uproar Festival mainstage schedule will be adjusted to allow longer performances from Shinedown, Godsmack, Staind and Adelitas Way following the departure of Papa Roach from the tour for medical reasons. We were sent this information:
Papa Roach singer Jacoby Shaddix has been diagnosed with a nodule on his left vocal cord, and at the advice of his physician he will undergo corrective surgery to remove the nodule and prevent further damage.
"It's no secret that I've been having issues with my voice lately. I was hoping to be able to go out there and kill it on this tour by resting and doing vocal exercises, but my voice has just gone out on me. I hate to let our fans down, but unfortunately surgery is the only way to fix it," Shaddix said. "The last thing we want to do is give our fans less than 100% every night. We know they'll understand and we'll be back better than ever."
