British singer Adele was forced to cancel the US leg of her concert tour due to a vocal cord hemorrhage. Her doctors have advised her to take an extended break so that she may fully recover.
"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. i want you to know the full story about my voice troubles so bare with me in this long blog. i first started having trouble with my voice back in january, it was weakened by a bout of flu from december and never got its complete strength back before i started my UK and European promotional tour, so it just got weaker and weaker until it eventually “broke” as i say. i didnt realise at the time, cause id never had anything wrong with my voice, ever. but id also never sung as much as i was at the time it went. i was diagnosed with laryngitis and ordered to rest intensely for 10 days, and i recovered and went on to do a show in london and a month long promo tour in the U.S and also the brit awards without any hiccups."Adele was scheduled to begin her tour Oct 7 in Atlantic City, NJ through the 21, two of those dates including Durham & Asheville, NC. Those of you who may have purchased tickets will be granted a full refund.
Get well soon Adele :)
