Laryngitis Forces Adele To Cancel Remaining U.S. Tour Dates, Including June 15 Dallas Stop


Hope Adele's break-up songs have helped y'all learn how to cope with loss, because this one might hurt a little bit: After already having canceled five shows (Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, Vancouver, Seattle, Portland) due to problems with laryngitis, the singer, who is straight destroying the Billboard charts these days, has just released a statement announcing that her nine remaining U.S. dates have been canceled as well. Yes, that includes her scheduled Dallas stop for Wednesday, June 15.

The token apology quote from Adele within release announcing the news:
"I'm really frustrated.  I was hoping with a weeks rest I'd be better to sing again straight away. However there is absolutely nothing I can do but take the doctors advice and rest some more. I'm so sorry. See you soon, love Adele."
At the moment, there's no news on rescheduled performances; they're just "being investigated" at the moment, says the press release, which you can read in full after the jump.

Adele's North American Tour Cancelled Due to Illness

British singer Adele has been forced to cancel the remaining 9 dates of her sold-out North American tour due to ongoing illness.  Adele recently postponed 5 shows under doctor's orders when she was diagnosed with laryngitis. 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 23 year old singer, renowned for her powerful live vocal performances, was intent on resuming her tour on June 4th in San Francisco, CA before learning of her advanced condition.

"I'm really frustrated.  I was hoping with a weeks rest I'd be better to sing again straight away. However there is absolutely nothing I can do but take the doctors advice and rest some more.  I'm so sorry.  See you soon, love Adele"

Plans to reschedule these cancelled tour dates are being investigated; more information will be provided when available.
