Pearl Jam has canceled the band’s Wednesday concert in Vienna, Austria due to frontman Eddie Vedder‘s throat being “damaged” amid the ongoing, historic heat wave in Europe.

“Due to the extreme circumstances at the last outdoor site outside of Paris (heat, dust, and smoke from the fires) our singer Ed Vedder’s throat was left damaged,” the “Even Flow” rockers write in a statement. “He has seen doctors and had treatment but as of yet, his vocal cords have not recovered.”

“This is brutal news and horrible timing…for everyone involved,” the statement continues. “Those who work so hard to put on the shows as well as those who give their precious time and energies to attend…As a band, we are deeply sorry and have tried to find options to still play. And Ed wants to play. There’s just no throat available at this time.”

Those who purchased tickets to the Vienna show will be refunded at the point of purchase. Pearl Jam’s next scheduled show is set to take place Friday, July 22 in Prague, Czech Republic.

Pearl Jam previously canceled dates on their U.S. tour after drummer Matt Cameron and bassist Jeff Ament tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this year.
