Adele forced to cancel U.S. tour due to vocal chord troubles

Sad news…

As fantastic as Adele’s music is, we have been unfortunately inundated with bad news the past several months when it comes to her health. The “Rolling in the Deep” singer was forced into canceling a plethora of dates earlier this June due to vocal issues, and now a hemorrhage of her vocal chord is causing her to scrap her tour for the U.S. scheduled for the fall.

Writing in a new (and rather honest) post on her official site,

“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”

As sad as it may be that her tour in the U.S. is not happening as originally planned, are you at least touched by the sincerity of this post when it comes to the cancellations?
