John Mayer cancels tour, including Ala.

John Mayer John Mayer

Seven-time Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter John Mayer is canceling his entire U.S. tour and is clearing his slate of all live performances after learning of the return of granuloma to his throat.

Mayer's now defunct tour included a Thursday, April 26 event at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater in Tuscaloosa.

Managers for the tour say tickets will automatically be refunded from all places they were purchased, including the box office.

"Nothing feels worse than having to break the stage down before the performance...," Mayer said to fans on his Tumblr page. "I love this band you were going to hear, I love the guys and girls I work with, and the only thing that stops me from devolving into a puddle of tears is know that it's a long life, and the greatest gift in the world is being able to create music no matter what the circumstances."

Mayer said he made the decision Tuesday to see his doctor again because his throat didn't feel right. The diagnosis was made the next day.

A granuloma, according to Mayer, "forms and continues to snowball because it's in a spot where the vocal cords hit together." He added that there's really no way for it to heal without "a good stretch of time and some pretty intensive treatment."

Mayer's planned album Born and Raised will be released as planned on May 22.
