MUSIC NEWS- After previous concert cancellations and ongoing health issues, UK singer-songwriter Adele has cancelled the rest of her sold out USA concert tour due to a vocal chord hemmorrhage, her record company annouced today, saying she won't make the trip accross the pond for the schduled concerts here.
The Grammy-winning singer has scrapped ten shows, starting with Atlantic City, NJ gig on October 7 and three dates in Texas two weeks later. Adele had been on the road promoting her topselling "21" album that has produced the hits "Rolling in the Deep" and "Someone Like You."
"I have absolutely no choice but to recuperate properly and fully, or I risk damaging my voice forever," the 23-year-old singer said in a statement on her website. "I have great confidence in believing you know how much this upsets me, how seriously I take it and how truly devastated and annoyed I am by this."
She was able to wrap up a tour in Britain when her illness reappeared. She then decided to cancel the upcoming USA dates, said a statement by Sony's Columbia Records.
"My voice is weak and I need to build it back up. I'm gonna be starting up vocal rehab as soon as, and start building my overall stamina in my voice, body and mind," the singer said. "I will be back and I'm gonna smash the ball out the park once I'm touring again. I apologize from the bottom of my heart, sincerely I do."
