Adele Suffers Vocal Cord Hemorrhage, Cancels Tour Dates

Adele has one of the most gifted voices in music — it’s too bad it keeps crapping out on her. The “Someone Like You” singer is suffered a vocal cord hemorrhage, and has been forced to cancel her 10 US tour dates in October, which were already rescheduled from her canceled tour dates in June. Read Adele’s statement on her sickly situation below.

Adele’s message to her fans, from her blog:

the fact is i have never been able to fully recover from any of the problems that ive had and then continue to rest even once im recovered, because of my touring commitments. ive been offered the chance to not tour at all to save anything like this from happening again, but i simply hate letting you down. although now im having to let you down once again through no fault of my own really. if i continue to pick up everything before i have properly conquered these problems and nipped them in the bud. i will be totally and utterly fucked. 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. 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 im 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 im gonna smash the ball out the park once im touring again. i apologise 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

At this point, we’d be happy if Adele took the rest of the year off just so her fans won’t be disappointed by another canceled concert. Plus, she needs to make sure her voice is in working order come February, when she’ll inevitably be up for about ten bazillion Grammys.
