Adele has been forced to cancel her opening two UK tour dates due to illness.

The singer was set to kick off her 15-date jaunt at Plymouth Pavilions tomorrow night (September 4) and at Bournemouth International Centre on Monday (September 5). But she has pulled both dates after coming down with a cold and chest infection.

A statement on her official website Adele.tv read:

It is with regret that due to a severe cold and chest infection, Adele has had to postpone the first two shows of her UK tour. The shows will be rescheduled at the earliest opportunity and all original tickets will remain valid. Refunds will be available from the point of purchase. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The singer struggled with illness earlier this year when she was forced to postpone a series of US tour dates due to acute laryngitis.

Her Number One album '21' is in the running for the 2011 Mercury Music Prize. The winner is due to be announced on Wednesday (September 7).
