Adele Cancels Handful of US Dates Due to Laryngitis
Poor Adele. She finally makes her way to America to tour in support of her best-selling '21' and she gets stopped dead in her tracks, thanks to a battle with a dreaded singer ailment known as laryngitis!
Adele ended up axing five dates on her tour in order to rest her voice. She is currently resting her famous pipes and the British soul diva will resume performing in San Francisco on June 4.
Adele revealed that was forced to cancel her May 26 gig in Minneapolis after losing her voice and struggling through the sound check. She was diagnosed that day, where doctors ordered immediate rest and postponement of that night's engagement at First Avenue; the gig has since been rescheduled for June 22.
Adele then performed on Saturday evening in Denver, Colo., at the Ogden Theater, which proved too early a return to the stage and only exacerbated her vocal problems. Adele's show last Sunday evening in Salt Lake City, Utah (at The Depot) was postponed last minute when her illness worsened. She was then forced to postpone shows in Vancouver, BC (at the Orpheum Theatre) on May 31; Seattle, WA (at the Paramount Theatre) on June 1; and Portland, OR (at the Crystal Ballroom) on June 3. Make up dates are forthcoming.
She posted the following message on her website about canceling: "I hate to cancel, especially at such short notice. I am truly devastated. I'm here in the city and tried to do sound check at the venue, but if I push through it tonight, it'll take me longer to get better and more shows may need canceling. Please forgive me!"
All is forgiven, Adele. Rest those beautiful vocal cords and your fans in postponed markets will hear you soon enough.
