Thomas Rhett was forced to abruptly delay Saturday's Take The Bar To You tour performance at Chula Vista, CA, at the North Island Credit Union Amphitheatre because of "vocal swelling and irritation."

On the 27th of August (Aug. 27, 2007) the country star took the hard decision to pull his show and released an announcement to the fans.

Hello San Diego, It breaks my heart to share this, but unfortunately, I'm unable to perform tonight due to swelling 

and irritation to my vocals and we have to pull the show from North Island Credit Union Amphitheatre," Rhett wrote.

I am sorry that this announcement comes very close to the time of the show. If you have already made the trip to the show, I sincerely apologize," Rhett continued.

"We've been trying all day long trying to get the show to happen but it's simply not possible and the show has been instructed not to show this evening."

statement concluded by telling fans that "everyone is eligible for an opportunity to get a refund upon purchase. I cherish your team, Home Team and hate that we can't be a part of your team tonight.
