Only days after her opening act, American Idol champ Jordin Sparks, had to pull out of a string of concerts due to throat troubles, platinum-selling singer Alicia Keys announced on Wednesday that swollen vocal cords are causing her to cancel two shows on her recently launch concert tour.

The singer, who released As I Am, her first album in four years, last fall, was forced to pull the plug on next Tuesday night's show in Pittsburgh and her concert in Cleveland next Thursday. According to her record company, tickets for the canceled Cleveland show will be honored at next Saturday's performance in Columbus, Ohio, where Alicia is expected to make her return to the stage.
