Meghan Trainor’s Tour Dates Canceled, Includes September 6 Allentown Fair Show

Aug 11th, 2015Press Release from The Great Allentown Fair

Meghan Trainor, the singer-songwriter-producer that was to perform at The Great Allentown Fair on Sunday, September 6, has canceled her tour due to vocal cord issues.

Trainor released the following statement this morning:

“Really bad news… 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. Sadly, I will need to cancel the remainder of my tour and get surgery to finally fix this once and for all. I am devastated and so sorry. I LOVE touring and seeing your beautiful faces every night. I am determined to do what it takes to get better and come back stronger than ever. I love you, and thank you for all of your understanding, love and support.”

The Fair received notification shortly before the statement was issued.  The Fair issued the following statement:

“The Great Allentown Fair was sorry to learn that Meghan won’t be joining us in a few weeks.  We wish her the best going through surgery and a speedy recovery.   Refunds will be processed starting Wednesday, August 12.  Ticket holders that purchased through Ticketmaster online and over the phone will receive direct refunds from Ticketmaster.  Those that purchased from Ticketmaster Centers are to go to the point of purchase.  Those that purchased at the Fair Box Office are to go to the Fair Box Office.  The Fair was notified that the remaining MTrain Tour dates have been canceled due to illness.”
