Adele Reveals That Health Concerns Mean Lengthy World Tour Not Possible

Written by Marc Zanotti on September 25, 2012

Late last year Music Feeds reported that Adele, arguably the biggest name in pop today, was recovering from a microsurgical procedure to remove a bleeding benign polyp from her vocal cords. Although the medical procedure was a success, the singer has recently revealed that the problem could reoccur should she ever embark on an extensive tour.

As reported by Diffuser, Adele admitted to Express that without taking periodical breaks to recuperate, the songstress runs the serious risk of permanently damaging her voice and hindering her ability to perform.

“It (the surgery) is basically a clean slate in my throat [but] it doesn’t mean it won’t happen again,” Adele tells Express, according Pop Dash, “If I decided to go on a 200-date tour, it will happen again through exhaustion”.

What this essentially means is that Adele is physically incapable of hitting the road for an extensive tour. Although the required breaks from touring will mean that fans around the world will have to be more patient in regards to Adele visiting their particular country, the wait is assuredly worth the reward. The alternative could render Adele unable to sing professionally, which is a grave possibility that causes the ’21’ songstress much distress.

“It starts from the minute I wake up,” Adele explains to Express, commenting on the possibility of not being able to perform live, “My fear is that I am not going to deliver and people aren’t going to enjoy it. I get panicky and sick, I have thrown up a few times.”
