Adele cancels the rest of her tour due to illness

Adele has joked that stage fright makes her sick to her stomach, but now the singer is battling a different illness: laryngitis. Update 6/3: Adele announced she had to postpone five tour dates on her sold-out North American tour earlier in the week, but the Brit singer has since canceled the rest of the tour.

According to a statement posted on her website, Adele had to cancel all 9 remaining stops because of ongoing illness. "While resting in Los Angeles, Adele met with an Otolaryngology specialist who determined it was imperative that she take the next few weeks to recover with absolute voice rest," the statement says.

Plans to reschedule are being investigated.
