Adele Cancels U.S. Tour Due To Bad Vocal Chords (UPDATED)
UPDATE (6:56 p.m.): According to Live Nation, the show will "most likely" be rescheduled, so you may not want to cash in on those refunds just yet. Stay tuned.
Chart-topping, world-beating British neo-soul singer Adele has canceled her upcoming U.S. tour, including a stop at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion October 18, due to hemorrhaging vocal chords, according to a statement on her Web site.
Sorry, folks. Rocks Off was really looking forward to this one too. If it's any consolation, some band is probably covering her hit single "Rolling In the Deep" at a music venue near you; Rocks Off has heard John Legend and Houston's thelastplaceyoulook do it so far this year.
Refunds at point of purchase. We'll let you know of any rescheduling, but don't count on it. If you're interested, the entire statement from Adele's site is below.
Adele has been forced to cancel her upcoming 10 city sold-out tour of the U.S. due to a haemorrhage into her vocal chord. Vocal chord issues forced the British singer to postpone dates earlier this year as well.
Adele has just wrapped up touring around the UK and was preparing to kick off her US tour on October 7 in Atlantic City, NJ when her illness reappeared (see below for full list of cancelled US tour dates). Renowned for her powerful live vocal performances, Adele has been advised by doctors that she'll need an extended rest period in order to begin to recuperate properly.
Further details to follow regarding these cancelled dates. Refunds may be obtained at point of purchase.
