Stateside Adele fans were so close to seeing the Brit phenom live, but she's pulled the plug on a collection of U.S. tour dates once again.
A statement from her label says the "Someone Like You" crooner "has been forced to cancel her upcoming 10 city sold-out tour of the U.S. due to a hemorrhage into her vocal chord."
According to her label, the singer was prepping to start her U.S. run on October 7 in Atlantic City, New Jersey, "when her illness reappeared." Doctors have instructed Adele to take "an extended rest period" so that she can get better.
More information about the cancellations will be received at a later date, the label says, adding that refunds can be received from where you purchased your tickets. The canceled dates include:
October 7 Atlantic City, NJ Borgata Spa & Resort
October 8 Durham, NC Durham Performing Arts Center
October 10 Nashville, TN Ryman Auditorium
October 11 Asheville, NC Thomas Wolfe Auditorium
October 13 Orlando, FL Hard Rock Live
October 14 Miami, FL Waterfront Theater at American Airlines Arena
October 16 Atlanta, GA Fox Theatre
October 18 Spring, TX Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion
October 19 Austin, TX Frank Erwin Center
October 21 Grand Prairie, TX Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie
The artist posted a lengthy post on her blog about her ongoing vocal problems, writing that she wanted to fully explain herself what she's been dealing with.
"Guys, im heartbroken and worried to tell you that yet again im experiencing problems with my voice. its ridiculous i know! i cant believe it myself. i follow all the advice im given and stick to regimes, rules and practices to the best of my ability but it seems to simply not be enough," she writes.
She continues, "My voice is weak and i need to build it back up....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."
