Justin Timberlake hasn’t played a concert since late October.

Healing from bruised vocal cords, the pop star postponed the entirety of his November and December dates, including Saturday’s concert at CHI Health Center.

Timberlake postponed his Omaha concert to March 23.

Tickets for Saturday’s show will be honored at the new date.

Timberlake took to social media late Wednesday to announce his December tour dates would be postponed.

“My vocal cords are healing, but they are not all the way back to normal yet, so my doctors want me to continue to rest my voice,” he said. “They have asked me to hold off on singing until next month.”

Timberlake moved all eight of his concerts scheduled in December, including Kansas City and St. Louis, to new dates in March and April.

Timberlake’s tour will resume on Jan. 4 in Washington, D.C.

Read Timberlake’s complete statement:

“Hey guys, I’m sure you have heard that I’ve had to postpone several tour dates due to bruised vocal cords. My vocal cords are healing, but they are not all the way back to normal yet, so my doctors want me to continue to rest my voice. They have asked me to hold off on singing until next month. I’m really sorry, I want to be back on the stage and I am doing all I can to get there quickly. Thank you for understanding — I see all of your posts and I appreciate the support and the love. I look forward to coming back stronger than I was before. More to come on the rescheduled dates.”
