Shania Twain was forced to cancel her Wednesday evening (June 22) concert in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino’s Zappos Theater due to illness and being place on vocal rest.
The “Man! I Feel Like A Woman” singer shared the unfortunate news in a note to fans on social media.
“To my dear fans, I am sad to say that I woke up this morning feeling unwell and with no voice. I am under strict doctors orders to rest and not sing,” Twain began. “Nothing makes me happier than being on stage and performing for you so I’m extremely disappointed to cancel tonight’s show. I’m going to do everything I can to get back on stage for this Friday and Saturday,” the five-time GRAMMY winner continued.
“Thank you for your love and understanding,” Twain concluded the post on Twitter.

This isn’t the first time Twain has suffered vocal problems. In 2004, the country hitmaker revealed that she was diagnosed with dysphonia, which led to a “very intense” surgery.
“I had to have an operation that was very intense and it’s an open-throat operation, very different from a vocal cord operation,” the iconic superstar previously shared with Extra. “And I had to have two of them, so that was really, really, really tough and I survived that, meaning emotionally I survived, and am just ready to keep going.”
At the time, Twain admitted that the diagnosis was traumatic for her. “When you’re a singer and it’s your voice, it is just a terrible, terrible feeling,” Twain added. “It was a great, great loss, so I had to come to terms with losing the voice that I had and rediscovering my new one. It’s been a long, a really rewarding, journey.”
