Earlier this month, poor Adele came down with a nasty case of laryngitis and was forced to cancel her North American tour to rest. We know a lot of you fans were devastated - we felt your pain - but the good news is that Adele is getting better everyday. She took to her website this morning to update her devoted fans on her condition and promise that she'll be back on tour as soon as she can.
Hello! As I’m sure most of you know i had to cancel over half of my US tour a couple weeks back. it was a devastating decision to make, but i really had no choice. i had to give my voice 2 weeks rest or risk permanent damage. I’m so so sorry. we are in the middle of rescheduling it all and i will see you there when i return. once all the new dates are in place ill let you know straight away! i was having the best time ever on tour, i enjoyed the shows so much and met so many amazing people and got to play with the best artists Ive ever played along side with, and i really am gutted to be back before its finished. thank you though to everyone who came to the shows i was able to do! I’m at home now, watching box sets and sorting things out into neat piles and resting. i haven’t been able to cook for almost 3 months cause Ive been on the road so I’m getting back into that. Ive become obsessed with beyonces i am sasha fierce tour dvd and 30 rock, and Ive also started uploading over 1000 cds to my itunes! long but satisfying! i cant wait to be able to sing again, I’m bored stiff. ive had a check up and im on the mend, i still need to take it easy and rest but things are looking up. i havent been told to not sing or talk for a month, i have given up smoking again! and also im not having singing lessons. i got better before and im getting better this time, and i will do everything i can to make sure nothing like this happens again! im gonna be on stage in london in just under 2 weeks but its a surprise i think!? xx
Well, at least something good came out of all of this: NO MORE SMOKING! Hooray!
It's such a yucky habit and anyway, it obviously did more harm than good to our goddess golden voice!
Take this time to rest and relax, girl! We want to see you at 100% the next time you take to the stage, no matter how long that takes!
