Adele 'really frustrated' after cancelling rest of US tour due to illness
'Rolling In The Deep' singer pulls another nine dates after postponing five shows earlier this week
Adele has cancelled the rest of her current North American tour after failing to recover from laryngitis.
After cancelling dates in Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, Vancouver, Seattle and Portland on Tuesday (May 31), the Tottenham soul singer was planning to resume the tour in San Francisco tonight (June 4).
However, a statement on her official website, Adele.tv, revealed that an otolaryngology specialist told the singer it is "imperative" that she uses the next few weeks to "recover with absolute voice rest".
"I’m really frustrated. I was hoping with a weeks rest I’d be better to sing again straight away. However there is absolutely nothing I can do but take the doctor's advice and rest some more. I’m so sorry," Adele said.
Plans to reschedule the tour are apparently "being investigated".
Adele's gig at First Avenue in Minneapolis is the only North American date that's been rescheduled so far. She will play at the venue on June 22.
