While Selena Gomez’s 18th year has been very busy so far with the premiere of her movie “Ramona and Beezus,” it looks like the excitement may have begun to take a toll on the young performer. The popular Disney Channel star was forced to cancel her performances on Wednesday and Thursday at the Delaware and Ohio state fairs due to strained vocal chords. For the next week, Gomez has been ordered by her physician to stay on vocal rest and avoid traveling on airplanes.
“I am extremely disappointed to cancel these shows,” Gomez said in a statement. “My fans mean the world to me and I was so excited to perform for them.”
In Delaware, Gomez’s appearance will be replaced by a free performance by Allstar Weekend. Her appearance will unfortunately not be rescheduled during the fair.
Fans holding tickets for Gomez’s Ohio concert are in luck, however, as the concert is now rescheduled for November 6th in Columbus. All tickets for Thursday’s canceled show will be honored, or guests can choose to return their tickets for a full refund.
