Chad Kroeger's 'Medical Emergency' Causes Nickelback To Join A LONG List Of Artists Who Cancelled Tours This Year!

| Filed under: Music MinuteHealthSurgery

no title

The show must go on.

Well, apparently not for some of your favorite musical artists because there have just been so many cancelled concert tours this year!

We just found out on Tuesday morning that Nickelback is cancelling the rest of its No Fixed Address North American Tour because Chad Kroeger wound up with an operable cyst on his voice box!

Chad is scheduled to undergo surgery in three weeks and won't be singing for a while after that as he heals, so they had to pull the plug on the concert series.

That means that the Canadian band will join other high profile no shows like Iggy Azalea and Sam Smith as the live music we lost too soon in 2015.

So which other famous musicians had to cancel their tours so far this year??

sJessie J posts a video of herself in the hospital!

Oh no!

Jessie J is swapping a concert costume for a hospital gown!

That's because the singer revealed on Tuesday that she just had surgery and will be going off the grid for a little bit, until she gets better.

She took to Instagram to post a side-by-side video, where on one side she's happy and healthy, and on the other she's recovering in a hospital bed.

But, she made sure to maintain her sense of humor regarding the whole thing, since she set the video to Everybody Hurts by R.E.M., and HIGHlariously captioned it "On fleek to on bleek real quick".

The pop star only explained that she had an operation, but if you want to know why, don't go asking her — because she's staying hush-hush about the whole thing.

She added in the caption:

With heavy hearts we want to let you guys know that Jimi will have to undergo surgery next week to remove a polyp on his…

Posted by Little Big Town on Wednesday, June 17, 2015

The group has not yet announced any rescheduled dates, but we're glad Jimi is putting his health first.

Vocal polyps are pretty serious for musicians, so we're relieved that he'll be taking the proper precautions for his recovery once he has his operation.

Ed Sheeran Helps A Man Propose To His Girlfriend With Terminal Brain Cancer During A Concert!

| Filed under: CanadialandMusic MinuteLove LineWedding WaltzEd SheeranHealthCancerSickSurgeryPut A Ring On It

Ed Sheeran gives this couple a dream proposal.

This story is incredible.

Ed Sheeran certainly loves love, and is no stranger to helping people propose at his concerts. But this one really tugs at the heartstrings.

Pablo Benitez knew he wanted to pop the question to Tanya Prochshyn at the red-headed songbird's concert in Saskatoon, Canada on Tuesday night.

[ Video: Ed Surprises A Fan By Joining Her Onstage For A Duet! ]

He wanted it to be perfect, because Tanya has terminal brain cancer:

"My girlfriend is a big fan of his… I tried everything on Sunday to find tickets to make this day a special day for her."

On Monday, he met the singer at a private function, where he was able to tell him all about how Tanya would be having surgery to remove part of her brain tumor on Wednesday.

The surgery won't be able to get rid of the entire tumor, because it's lodged in her brain. Doctors have said she has another four or five years to live, and the operation would help extend her life.

So, Pablo told Ed that he wanted to propose at his concert so she will understand that during the surgery "she has a family waiting for her and giving her strength."

Naturally, the musician got Pablo into the show, where he got down on one knee during Thinking Out Loud. The Don't singer even gave the couple a shout-out during the love song. Ch-ch-check it out at about 1:19 (below)!

OMG! The Recipient Of The World's First Penis Transplant Has A Baby On The Way!

| Filed under: Baby BlabberSurgeryGIFsViral: NewsPeen

The world's first penis transplant recipient shows the surgery really was a success!

Talk about a successful surgery!

Doctors performed the first effective penis transplant back in December, and while everything went smoothly, many people were curious if his little swimmers would be able to, um, perform.

The girlfriend of the 21-year-old recipient is reportedly four months pregnant, according to the patient's doctor!

The South African man had to have his original penis amputated to save his life from a circumcision gone wrong. The baby-making organ was replaced — thanks to a donor and a team of skilled doctors — as part of a 9-hour-long surgery at Tygerberg Hospital in Cape Town.

The surgeons had said recovering would take two years for him, and didn't even declare the procedure to be a success until March.

Well, it looks like he certainly had a speedy recovery, since the pregnancy allegedly happened au naturale!

What a Hero!

On Tuesday, the singer's site posted an update on his condition, explaining:

"His recent surgery lasted longer than expected since the damage ended up being a bit worse than initially assessed. He suffered a fracture that needed to be corrected in addition to the reconstructive surgery. He will be recovering during the next few weeks, but a full recovery is anticipated."

We're so glad Enrique can get back to being a Dirty Dancer so soon!

For all the deets on his scary accident, ch-ch-check out the video (below)!

So Sweet! A Hooters Waitress Donated Her Kidney To A Restaurant Regular!

| Filed under: InspirationHealthCancerSickSurgeryViral: News

A Hooters waitress from Georgia generously gave a kidney to a customer in need.

Talk about stellar service!

Mariana Villarreal is a server at the Hooters in Roswell, Georgia, where customr Don Thomas is a familiar face.

But now, their relationship goes far beyond the typical bond between a waitress and a restaurant regular.

[ Video: This Surprise Proposal Puts Love And Basketball To Shame! ]

When Mariana found out the longtime customer had lost both his kidneys to cancer, she graciously gave up one of her own. And despite Don's dedication to this particular Hooters, he admits that he wasn't that familiar with her:

"Mariana had only been here a short time. I just barely knew her when she made the offer."

Then why would she donate such a vital organ to someone she didn't really know? For the young waitress, the thought process was simple:

"I said, 'Well I have two kidneys, do you want one of mine?'"

But even though the two were barely acquaintances, Mariana's decision to donate had a deeper meaning, since her grandmother had recently passed away due to kidney failure:

"I wasn't able to do anything for my grandma. If Don can live two more years, happy as he's ever been, that's fine with me. That's not up to me. I did my part, now it's God's turn to keep him alive."

The two went under the knife on Friday, and according the hospital report, both Mariana and Don are recovering just fine. And, doctors have said that you can live your entirely life completely normally with only one kidney.

Mariana's generosity certainly brings new meaning to putting the customer first!
