Adele has cancelled all of her remaining 2011 tour dates and will undergo surgery on her throat to treat a career-ending vocal cord haemorrhage. She has had throat problems all year and was forced to cancel her US tour earlier in October, now she will cancel all shows and promotional appearances.
A statement from her management reads:
It is with deep regret that Adele has been forced to cancel her remaining live dates and promotional appearances in 2011.
She is to undergo surgery to alleviate the current issues with her throat – and a full recovery is expected.
Doctors have ordered her to rest her voice and completely recuperate before looking to schedule any work commitments.
