Poor Adele. Not only is the British soul singer's material rife with heartbreak, she's got to deal with the sadness of canceling another chance to capitalize on her rise to prominence in America.
A hemorrhage in her vocal cords, which has been a recurring problem, has made it impossible for her to complete ten U.S. dates set for October, including a stop in Miami on October 14 at American Airlines Arena. It's doctor's orders, so deal.
Adele posted this message (more at the source) regarding the cancellations:
singing is literally my life, its my hobbie, my love, my freedom and now
my job. I have absolutely no choice but to recuperate properly and
fully, or i risk damaging my voice forever. 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. wanting to do something
so bad and not being able to is the most frustrating thing as im sure
you know! 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 over all
stamina in my voice, body and mind. i will be back and im gonna smash
the ball out the park once im touring again. i apologise from the bottom
of my heart, sincerely i do. i know its not only disappointing because
of the show, but its plane tickets, hotel bookings, birthdays,
anniversaries and time wasted. but please have faith in me that this is
the only thing i can do to make sure i can always sing and always make
music for you to the best of my ability. truly yours and yours only
forever, adele xx
On the bright side, she will likely use some of this time off to compile some thoughts for 23, or whatever number she chooses for her next project.
