NEW YORK (AP) - Nickelback is canceling its summer tour as lead singer Chad Kroeger has been diagnosed with an operable cyst on his voice box.

The band posted a statement and a video on its website Tuesday about canceling the rest of its 2015 No Fixed Address North American Tour.

Kroeger will have surgery in three weeks and will have to rest after, the band wrote in a statement. Ticket refunds will be available at the point of purchase.

Kroeger said he’s “definitely not thrilled with the prospect of being silent for many weeks to come when I could be out there playing for our fans.”

Nickelback plans to hit the road in Europe this fall. Their hits include “How You Remind Me” and “Photograph.”
