(AP) Justin Timberlake has been silenced.
Timberlake writes on Instagram his doctors have ordered him to rest his bruised vocal cords for at least a month.
Timberlake first reported problems with his voice in late October when he called off a show in New York.
Timberlake was scheduled to play Omaha and Kansas City this week and St. Louis next week, then Washington on Jan. 4.
It's unclear when Timberlake intends to be back touring.
