Published Oct 28, 2011This has been a year of ups and downs for Adele. On the one hand, the mega-famous Welsh belter released the industry-conquering album 21. But on the other, she's been forced to repeatedly cancel tours due to vocal cord issues. Now, the singer has axed all of her remaining shows in 2011 as she prepares to undergo throat surgery.
A statement released today (October 28) on her official website 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. As a result, doctors have ordered her to rest her voice and completely recuperate before looking to schedule any work commitments.
Adele only had six dates remaining in 2011, all of them in the UK. She also cancelled her recent U.S. October tour. See the axed dates over at her website.
We may not be hearing from the singer from a while, and she'll doubtless be resting up after the surgery. In the meantime, fans will be able to get their fix of Adele by checking out the Live at the Royal Albert Hall DVD when it drops on November 29 via XL Recordings.
