Keith Urban to undergo throat surgery

Los Angeles: Country singer Keith Urban will undergo surgery to remove a polyp that developed in his throat.

Although it is a minor surgery, Urban will have to rest for a short period of time.

"Although Urban has had to substantially scale back his appearances requiring multiple songs, he will be honoring his pre-existing one-song performance commitments leading up to his procedure at the end of this month. All other appearances will be rescheduled in the new year," quoted his representative as saying.
