After wowing audiences with her performance at last week's MTV Video Music Awards, singer Christina Aguilera was forced to pull the plug on a show this past Saturday in Boston and another show in Virginia Beach, Virginia, on Monday because of problems with her voice.
According to a message posted on the teen singer's official Web site after the Boston date was nixed, Aguilera "intends to rest her voice further over the next few days," a decision that eventually led to the Virginia show's cancellation as well.
Aguilera is hoping to reschedule the two concerts, although makeup dates and venues have yet to be announced.
A strained voice also caused Aguilera to miss a gig earlier this month in Syracuse, New York, as well as an appearance at the annual Jerry Lewis TV fund-raiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (see "Aguilera Misses Concert, Telethon With Strained Voice").
Following a few
days rest, Aguilera is next scheduled to perform at the Latin Grammy Awards, to take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday night. Aguilera will then head back to the East Coast to resume her tour on Friday, September 15, with a concert in Camden, New Jersey.
