‘It’s brutal news and terrible timing.’

The words come from Pearl Jam, after the rock band is forced to cancel its next concert.

The band’s lead singer, Eddie Vedder, has suffered a vocal cord injury, which he attributes to the extreme weather conditions in France this week.

It writes The Guardianwhich reports that Pearl Jam performed at the Lollapalooza Paris festival on Sunday, with temperatures reaching 36 degrees by mid-afternoon.

And after days later, the rock band chooses to cancel their next concert, which should have been in Vienna.

“Due to the extreme circumstances (heat, dust and smoke from the fires), our singer Ed Vedder’s neck was damaged. He has seen doctors and received treatment, but his vocal cords have not yet recovered. This is brutal news and terrible timing … for everyone involved,” the rock band explained, according to The Guardian.

On Tuesday, BT wrote that heat records have been broken in 64 places in France. It happened when a heat wave culminated on Monday.

This is confirmed by France’s national weather service on Tuesday.

Most records were set along the Atlantic coast, where temperatures above 40 degrees were measured. Several forest and natural fires are also raging here.
