The Chicks abruptly ended their Noblesville, Indiana concert after vocalist Natalie Maines experienced vocal issues.

On Sunday evening (June 19), the award-winning trio’s self-titled tour made a stop in a suburb of Indianapolis and after a just few songs, Maines told the audience that The Chicks could not continue with their performance.

One concertgoer captured footage of Maines apologizing to the crowd.

“We’ll try one more song. Waiting for this shot to kick in. Not a shot of alcohol! Steroids,” Maines said. “I’m so sorry. I just can’t pull it off.”

According to Fox59, Maines told the audience that her allergies were acting up earlier in the show. She hoped that the steroid shot would help, however, it appears it did not.

Following the sudden ending to the Noblesville concert, The Chicks, who remain the biggest-selling U.S. female band of all time, took to social media to share a statement regarding the abrupt cancellation.

“Indianapolis, we are so sorry we could not give you the show you deserved OR the show we wanted to give you. We will be back Indianapolis!!” the trio, composed of Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire and Emily Strayer, wrote.

Maines, Maguire and Strayer promised fans that they’ll be back to give them the show that they deserve.

”Hold onto your tickets. Ticket holders will be contacted by the official point of purchase with further information. We love you Indianapolis, The Chicks.”

Patty Griffin and Jenny Lewis join The Chicks on select dates of the trek, which kicked off on June 14 in St. Louis, MO. The trek wraps up on Saturday, August 13 at The Gorge Amphitheatre.

The tour is set to resume on Tuesday (June 21) in Cincinnati.
