If Kelly Clarkson had continued performing on her tour which was to take her to Israel, she could have caused irreparable damage to her vocal cords, her guitarist Danny Weissfeld wrote to fans. "In the last weeks of the tour, Kelly started to suffer from a serious throat infection. By the end of her last show, she could hardly speak, and her doctor told her that if she doesn't rest her voice, it could cause irreversible damage," wrote the Israeli-born Weissfeld on a Clarkson message board to Israeli fans explaining the cancellation of two shows in Tel Aviv. Weissfeld said that while the shows were postponed, not cancelled, it was too early to talk about new dates. "Kelly needs to feel better, get well, and only then we will start planning the next tour. Kelly wants you all to know how sorry she is for cancelling the shows, but we prefer that you'll get an amazing show, with new energy, rather than a bad show because of fatigue."
