Less than two weeks after German rock band Tokio Hotel was forced to cancel their sold-out tour while lead singer Bill Kaulitz underwent vocal chord surgery, the band is scheduling concert dates for next month.

Doctors removed a cyst from Kaultiz’s vocal chords, and then ordered the singer to complete silence for seven days. The surgery was successful. The band’s label confirms to PEOPLE that Kaulitz will be well enough to perform on May 3 at the Bamboozle festival at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, NJ.

Also playing the festival: Snoop Dogg, Gym Class Heroes, and Panic at the Disco.

The performance will come just three days before the band releases their first English language CD, Scream, in the U.S.
