Avril Lavigne on Canceled Shows: 'My Voice Is Shot'
Avril Lavigne
Avril Lavigne has cancelled two concerts on doctor's orders. And now the singer is taking to her blog to explain and apologize to her fans.

"I have been sick this whole tour, and now I have lost my voice," she writes in a blog entry posted Thursday. "I have never canceled a show in my whole career and just had to for the first time ever. This sux!"

Lavigne, 23, had to call off shows in San Diego and Phoenix after coming down with acute laryngitis. "My voice is so shot," she writes. We drove home yesterday and I went to my throat doctor. He stuck a camera down my throat....ewwww, I gagged!!! It was kinda funny though."

The singer reveals that she almost pulled out of an April 29 show at Las Vegas's the Pearl at the Palms– but soldiered on. Writes Lavigne: "I made it through.....barely! I still went on stage in Vegas and gave it my all."

After her Las Vegas concert, Lavigne and an entourage of 20 threw an afterparty at MOON Nightclub.

Lavigne's tour is expected to resume May 3 in Anaheim, Calif.
