Timberlake broke the news to his social media followers on Wednesday, citing his bruised vocal cords as the reason for the delay.
“Hey Guys, I’m sure you have heard that I’ve had to postpone several tour dates due to bruised vocal cords,” he wrote via a shared note on Instagram. “My vocal cords are healing, but they are not all the way back to normal yet, so my doctors want me to continue to rest my voice. They have asked me to hold off on singing until next month. I’m really sorry, I want to be back on the stage and I am doing all I can to get there quickly. Thank you for understanding—I see all of your posts and I appreciate the support and the love. I look forward to coming back stronger than I was before. More to come on rescheduled dates. ”
Hill then offered to step up to the plate.
“I have decided to fill in got JT on his remaining dates,” the actor wrote in the comments section. “It’s what we do in our incredibly small circle of people with extraordinary voices. Feel better. I got you until you do.”
“@jonahhill well guys…I was gonna wait for my next post to unleash this wonderful news. BUT…you heard it here first,” Timberlake replied back. “Jonah crushes ‘Mirrors’ too so you guys are gonna LOVE IT. Thanks man!”
