CINCINNATI, OH (LEX 18) — Riverbend Music Center announced the Chris Stapleton concert slated for Thursday, October 21 has been postponed.

On Saturday, Stapleton took to Facebook to share that he had to cancel due to his laryngitis.

"To all my friends in Sioux Falls, I am sorry to let you know that I am unable to perform tonight's show due to laryngitis. I want you all to know this wasn't a decision we made lightly. I was hoping that my voice would improve with time today, but it has only gotten worse. We sincerely apologize to every ticket holder & hope to see you all on the rescheduled date, 11.14.2021. We love you and appreciate your understanding."

The show at Riverbend in Cincinnati is being rescheduled to a date in 2022.

Stapleton advises ticketholders to keep tickets as they will still be honored at the rescheduled dates.

I want to thank you for all your well wishes and kind words you have shared over the last few days. I had hoped to have some good news to share with you all after this quiet time, but unfortunately the progress I made is not enough. On doctor’s orders, I will need to continue my vocal rest through the weekend in order to fully heal. I am sorry that so many of you have been inconvenienced and I’m truly thankful for your patience and understanding.
Nothing is more personal to me than the experience of music. I’m eternally grateful for the privilege of sharing in that journey with all of you night after night. Thank you for your continued support and I hope to see you all very soon.
