British singer Adele cancels the shows she had scheduled for the end of this year because of some serious health problems that have forced her to resume to surgery. The soul music artist is scheduled for an operation in the following days, Us Weekly reports.
Adele, 23, will have to put her career on hold for a while and concentrate on her health state. She has been having problems with her vocal chords for a while and on Friday, an announcement on her official website confirmed that the problems are getting worse. “It is with deep regret that Adele has been forced to cancel her remaining live dates and promotional appearances in 2011”, the statement begins. The singer “is to undergo surgery to alleviate the current issues with her throat and a full recovery is expected”. The statement also says that her doctors have recommended her full vocal rest in order to recuperate. Only then she could “schedule any work commitments”.
Adele was first diagnosed with laryngitis and given a clear recommendation of voice rest. But despite that, her vocal chords haven’t healed. Unfortunately, her fans that bought tickets to her concerts this year won’t be able to see her, but, as the statement informs, they will get a full refund.
Adele’s voice condition has forced her to cancel over 15 appearances. In the Unites States, the number of performances cancelled since the beginning of October included the concert in Atlantic City at Borgata Spa, the one in Durham, NC at the Performing arts Center, the one in Nashville, TN, at the Ryman Auditorium, the one in Miami, FL, at the Waterfront Theatre and many others.
For November, she had to cancel 6 shows, including the ones in Wolverhampton ant the Civic Hall and the ones in Plymouth, Cardiff, Blackpool and Bournemouth.
