On the eve of her San Francisco show this Saturday, June 4, Adele was forced to cancel the remainder of her sold-out tour North American tour due to her ongoing bout of laryngitis. Last week the "Someone Like You Singer" canceled a show in Minneapolis, but rallied enough to perform a concert in Denver a few days later. The performance proved a little too taxing, so under the advisement of her doctor, she canceled five more shows with an eye to returning to the stage this weekend at San Francisco's Warfield Theatre. As the day approached, it became clear that she hadn't improved enough so the concert was scotched.
"I'm really frustrated," Adele vexed in a statement issued by her record label. "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."
The statement also revealed that While recuperating in Los Angeles, the beleaguered singer met with anOtolaryngology specialist who determined it was imperative that she takes the next few weeks to recover with absolute voice rest.
"People keep saying she has a throat infection, or is just exhausted, but none of that is true," said Adele's rep. "It's nothing more than laryngitis and the only cure for that is complete inactivity.
According to the label, plans to reschedule these canceled tour dates are being investigated; more information will be provided when available.
