LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Las Vegas Strip headliner Shania Twain will be sidelined for shows through Thursday due to a sore throat.

The country music star's resident venue The Colosseum at Caesars Palace said Wednesday she was placed on strict vocal rest after developing the ailment.

The Colosseum also said she was diagnosed with a virus that inflamed her vocal chords, pushing her rest time through Thursday.

Twain's performance on Wednesday will be the second straight show to be canceled. A performance scheduled for Friday is expected to go on as planned, the Colosseum said.

The venue said those who have bought tickets to the affected dates may exchange them for a future performance at the Colosseum Box Office or at 1-888-929-7849. Those who bought the tickets with cash may seek a refund at the original point of purchase.

Credit card buyers will be automatically refunded.
