Steve Aoki Cancels Shows For Surgery

LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — DJ and producer Steve Aoki has canceled a string of performances in Europe in order to undergo throat surgery.

In a video posted on his Facebook page, Aoki said yelling during years of concerts has damaged his vocal chords.

"For the past 20 years, all the screaming at my shows have severely messed up my vocal chords. I've prolonged this surgery for quite some time, and the doc said it's now or never," Aoki said

"If I don't save my voice, I won't have one soon. I don't have a choice. It has to be done. I'm really trying to cancel the least amount of shows as possible," he added.

The affected shows are in Ibiza, Spain; Wijchen, Netherlands; and Newcastle and Upminster, United Kingdom. – Staff Writers
