Chart-topping singer Adele has been forced to cancel the 10 shows remaining of her American tour after suffering a severe vocal cord haemorrhage this week.
Adele was "heartbroken and worried" at having to announced the cancellation of the rest of her tour because many of the shows were already rescheduled dates.
British soul singer Adele has been plagued with health problems over the past year, forcing her to cancel and reschedule her performance dates repeatedly.
In June, Adele was struck with a severe case of laryngitis. She took several months off to recover and attempted to relaunch her tour in September. Unfortunately she developed a chest and respiratory infection and missed 6 out of 15 shows last month.
Now after cancelling her American tour the Grammy award winning singer is completely devastated, but says she has no choice.
"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," Adele said in a blog post.
"I follow all the advice I'm given and stick to regimes, rules and practices to the best of my ability but it seems to simply not be enough," she continued.
"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."
Get better soon Adele! Cancelling shows is sad, but losing her voice and music forever would be way worse!
