Sam Smith has quite a soft spot for Australia. The award-winning British singer spent his holiday vacation Down Under in late December and early January, and after a Sydney gig the other night, Smith posted a photo on Instagram and stated, “SYDNEY. I love you.”

However, Smith let fans and Aussie ticket-buyers know today that he’s had to scrap the final four dates of his tour in the country after suffering a “small” hemorrhage on his vocal cords.

“I am deeply, deeply saddened to tell my Australian fans, I have to cancel my Australian tour,” he posted on Instagram. “I have been vocally exhausted for a while now however last night in Sydney I had a small haemorrhage on my vocal chords [sic]. The doctors have told me I need to fully rest until my vocal chords [sic] have healed, otherwise this could become a huge long-term issue.”
