Critically acclaimed singer Adele has been forced to cancel the remaining ten performances for her sold out U.S. tour. The “Rolling in the Deep” singer has to heal a hemorrhage in her vocal chord and will not be able to perform at the already rescheduled dates.
Adele wrote to fans on her website stating, “Singing is literally my life, its my hobbie, my love, my freedom and now my job. I have absolutely no choice but to recuperate properly and fully, or I risk damaging my voice forever.”
Earlier this year, the record breaking singer battled a severe bout of laryngitis and had to withdraw from several shows. She spent the summer recovering and tried to make a comeback in September but developed a respiratory and chest infection and was only able to make nine of the 15 shows last month.
She offered a sincere apology to fans adding: “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 overall stamina in my voice, body and mind,” the singer said. “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.”
Adele’s sophomore effort ’21’ is the bestselling album of 2011 to date, in both the US and UK.
