British siren Adele makes singing those heavy songs and belting out those lovely notes look so easy. But it appears that the road—and a throat infection—has taken its toll on her voice.
Today she announced that she’s canceling the remaining nine dates of her sold-out North American tour, including stints in Los Angeles, Dallas, and Atlanta, after being diagnosed with laryngitis. Her otolaryngology specialist requires Adele, 23, take the next few weeks off.
“I’m really frustrated,” she says in a press release. “I was hoping with a week’s rest I’d be better to sing again straight away. However there is absolutely nothing I can do but take the doctor’s advice and rest some more. I’m so sorry. See you soon.” Her team’s working on rescheduling the canceled shows and will reveal new dates when they’re confirmed.
