Adele, whose debut album 19, certified seven times platinum in the UK and three times platinum in the US, has canceled the last two sell-out shows of her world tour. The shows were to take place at London’s Wembley Stadium this weekend. The singer, who had already performed two nights at Wembley, is suffering from vocal discomfort. Adele has had to cancel the last two sell-out shows of her world tour on doctor’s advise.
Adele cancels last two sell-out shows of her world tour
The 29-year-old singer had consulted a throat doctor on Friday night and the doctor advised her to refrain from performing. In a statement issued recently, Adele reveals that she’s heartbroken that she had to cancel the shows, but that she’s been struggling vocally –
I don’t even know how to start this. The last two nights at Wembley have been the biggest and best shows of my life. To come home to such a response after so long away doing something I never thought I could pull off but did has blown me away. However, I’ve struggled vocally both nights. I had to push a lot harder than I normally do. I felt like I constantly had to clear my throat, especially last night. I went to see my throat doctor this evening because my voice didn’t open up at all today and it turns out I have damaged my vocal cords. And on medical advice I simply am unable to perform over the weekend. To say I’m heart broken would be a complete understatement.
The singer is maxed out on steroids and aids for her voice. Upset that she cannot sing, the singer even considered miming, just to be in front of her fans. But she also confessed that she’s never done it and would never be able to do it in a million years, since it wouldn’t me the real her up there.
I’m so desperate to do them that I’ve even considered miming, just to be in front of you and be with you. But I’ve never done it and I cannot in a million years do that to you. It wouldn’t be the real me up there. I’m sorry. I’m sorry for your disappointment.
Adele’s fans, as a sweet gesture, arranged for a sing-song in her honor. A group of fans, who call themselves Daydreamers, organized a meet up outside of Adele’s concert venue and called for fans to come and sing – “Adele can’t sing for us but we can sing for her.”
