“Hey Guys, I’m sure you have heard that I’ve had to postpone several tour dates due to bruised vocal cords,” he wrote 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.”
“I have decided to fill in [for] JT on his remaining dates,” Hill said. “It’s what we do in our incredibly small circle of people with extraordinary voices. Feel better. I got you until you do.”
In response, the Grammy winner quipped, “Well guys…I was gonna wait for my next post to unleash this wonderful news. BUT…you heard it here first. Jonah crushes ‘Mirrors’ too so you guys are gonna LOVE IT. Thanks man!”
And TheDaily Show host, who’s also under doctor’s orders not to use his vocal cords after losing his voice, was eager to bond with Timberlake over the condition.
“Let’s go on a silent retreat together JT,” he commented.
At the end of November, the singer shared in a statement that he’d postponed another concert, one of many within the past year.
“As a result of bruised vocal cords, the Justin Timberlake Man of The Woods concert currently scheduled for Nov. 27 at Staples Center in Los Angeles is postponed,” it read. “Fans are advised to hold onto their tickets pending updated show information as they will be honored at the rescheduled event. Justin Timberlake is sorry for the inconvenience to his fans.”

“Hey guys, I’m sorry to announce I have to postpone the show at MSG tonight on doctor’s orders,” he wrote. “My vocal cords are severely bruised. I’m gonna make this up to you and the new show will be on my birthday, January 31. More info to come. Again I’m so sorry to do this, but excited to see you soon. Love, J.”
Timberlake then postponed planned shows in Buffalo, New York, and Tacoma, Washington. His Los Angeles concert was to be his first back since the injury.
