Although the singer has been cleared by doctors to perform after two surgeries to repair a granuloma in his throat, it was apparent his voice is still on the mend. This would be John's second attempt to perform songs from Born & Raised, after canceling his spring tour last year due to the reoccurring throat issues.
I sure hope he's ready because it looks like his summer is packed with 3 full months of shows across the country. The tour starts in July at Milwaukee's Summerfest and winds down at Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl, Oct. 5. Most shows go on sale next weekend, including his Chicago show at First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre, scheduled for Aug. 9.
