Adele Adkins, English singer-songwriter, has announced the cancellation of the last two concerts of her ’25’ tour which began in February 2016.
The Hello singer shared the news on her social media accounts.
Adele said she struggled vocally during the Wednesday and Thursday shows that held at Wembley Stadium, London, UK.
According to Adele, she has done 121 shows on the tour and the last two she cancelled were scheduled to hold on Saturday and Sunday.
“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. However, I’ve struggled vocally both nights. I had to push a lot harder than I normally do,” she wrote.
“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 29-year-old singer said she considered performing in Saturday but she had maxed out on steroids and vocal aids.
“I’m already maxed out on steroids and aids for my voice. I’ve considered doing Saturday nights show but it’s highly unlikely I’d even make it through the set and I simply can’t crumble in front of you all and walk out on you in that way. 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. I’m sorry for the nights you would have had with your loved ones and the memories you would have made together. I’m sorry for the time and money you’ve spent organizing your trips. You know I would not make this decision lightly.
“I have done 121 shows and I have 2 left. They are 2 gigantic shows! Who cancels a show at Wembley Stadium!? To not complete this milestone in my career is something I’m struggling to get my head around and I wish that I wasn’t having to write this.
“I have changed my life drastically in every way to make sure I got through this tour that started at the beginning of last year. To not be able to finish it is something I’m really struggling to come to terms with. It’s as if my whole career has been building up to these 4 shows.”
She assured that refunds would be made if the shows can not be rescheduled.
