Vocal Issues Force Adele To Cancel North American Tour Dates (Again)

Videos by American Songwriter

Bad news for British soul singer Adele’s many fans in the United States; the 23-year-old has cancelled her planned 10-city tour of North America, due to a hemorrhage into her vocal chord. Adele had to cancel dates earlier in the year due to vocal issues as well. Refunds can be obtained at point of purchase.

“Singing is literally my life, its my hobbie, my love, my freedom and now my job,” Adele writes in a post on her site. “I have absolutely no choice but to recuperate properly and fully, or I risk damaging my voice forever. I have great confidence in believing you know how much this upsets me, how seriously i take it and how truly devastated and annoyed I am by this. wanting to do something so bad and not being able to is the most frustrating thing as I’m sure you know! my voice is weak and I need to build it back up. I’m gonna be starting up vocal rehab as soon as, and start building my over all stamina in my voice, body and mind. I will be back and I’m gonna smash the ball out the park once I’m touring again. I apologize from the bottom of my heart, sincerely I do. I know its not only disappointing because of the show, but its plane tickets, hotel bookings, birthdays, anniversaries and time wasted. but please have faith in me that this is the only thing I can do to make sure I can always sing and always make music for you to the best of my ability. truly yours and yours only forever, adele xx”
