Swedish melodic power metallers Hammerfall have cancelled their Finnish headlining shows (originally scheduled for early January) in order to allow singer Joacim Cans enough time to recover from an operation which he is due to undergo in December.
Here goes the statement of the band:
"After a couple of months of serious vocal problems, my doctor finally tracked down the root of all evil. On my right vocal cord he found a polyp that affected both my speaking and singing voice. Lately I have lost almost one octave of my natural (high) range and I can promise you that it's been very frustrating. So, next week it's time for my doctor's magic hands to sharpen the scalpel and do surgery on 'my precious' cords. After the surgery I have to shut up for at least seven days — gonna be hard! — followed by some professional vocal training in order to build up the strength again. The tour will start as planned in Denmark on January 18, but unfortunatelly the shows in Finland have been postponed to a later date and all promotional work including me have been cancelled."
