Published May 31, 2011Adele may have the No. 1 album and single in North America, but what the British soul pop singer doesn't have is a voice, at least not at the moment. Due to a bout with laryngitis, the UK chanteuse has been forced to cancel a number of dates.
A press release confirms that the Grammy-winning star was diagnosed with the temporary condition last Thursday (May 26) in Minneapolis, MN and was ordered by doctors to rest up. She then cancelled that night's performance at the city's First Avenue club.
Her condition has not yet improved, which is why she also cancelled a Sunday night (May 29) stop in Salt Lake City, as well as tonight's (May 31) scheduled performance at Vancouver's Orpheum Theatre. She will also be skipping dates in Seattle and Portland this week. The tour will resume June 4 in San Francisco. See the adjusted schedule below.
While a show has been rescheduled for the missed Minneapolis gig, nothing has been arranged for the other four dates as of yet. Hopefully things get arranged for the fans that missed out. As Exclaim! found out in Toronto, the singer's "charm and effortless, gut-wrenching talent" packs a punch in concert.
UPDATE: Adele has now cancelled all her remaining North American dates.
