Adele Sick Cold Chest Infection Cancels Tour Dates Get Well Balloon


Adele is back under the weather with the nasty health problems that forced her to cancel tour dates before.

This just really sucks! For everyone!!

We hope she feels better soon and that her throat heals completely!

She posted a letter addressing the matter on her blog, which we've included for your convenience:

Guys, im heartbroken and worried to tell you that yet again im experiencing problems with my voice. its ridiculous i know! i cant believe it myself. i follow all the advice im given and stick to regimes, rules and practices to the best of my ability but it seems to simply not be enough. i want you to know the full story about my voice troubles so bare with me in this long blog. i first started having trouble with my voice back in january, it was weakened by a bout of flu from december and never got its complete strength back before i started my UK and European promotional tour, so it just got weaker and weaker until it eventually “broke” as i say. i didnt realise at the time, cause id never had anything wrong with my voice, ever. but id also never sung as much as i was at the time it went. i was diagnosed with laryngitis and ordered to rest intensely for 10 days, and i recovered and went on to do a show in london and a month long promo tour in the U.S and also the brit awards without any hiccups. the whole time i stuck to a strict regime of numerous diets, steaming, vocal rest and vocal warm ups. which is very necessary but insanely grim. After a bit of time off I embarked on my european and UK tours at the end of march and finished at the end of april and everything seemed fine.

in may i went on tour in the U.S, i was in minneapolis which was about half way through the tour. i made a skype call in the morning on the day of the show and during it my voice suddenly switched off like a light! it was literally as if someone pulled a curtain over my throat. i knew something was wrong and panicked but convinced myself id be fine. i got to soundcheck and knew immediately i couldnt perform and with doctors advice cancelled the show. i was mortified and distraught but stubbornly insisted we go to denver for the following day, i did the show even though in the back of mind i knew it wasnt the right thing to do. and during it i felt, what i can only describe as something ripping in my throat. but adrenalin kicked in and i was too embarrassed to not finish the show. I was sent to LA to rest and get another opinion. this time i was diagnosed with a hemorrhage. which is like a black eye on the vocal chord, it was incredibly tender and dangerous if i was to continue to sing through it. i was ordered to rest, so i flew home and did for a month. then slowly i started fulfilling my commitments. i did a show in london at the itunes festival and then went on to complete the first leg of the rescheduled US shows and perform at the VMAS which were all a blinding success.

however when i got home and prepared to start my UK tour in september i developed a respiratory and chest infection which had nothing to do with any of my voice problems from before but still forced me to cancel 6 shows and a performance at the mercury awards. i was stuffed full of antibiotics, had some time to rest and in the end managed to do 9 shows of the 15. After them and once back home my voice yet again went. mid conversation and it just switched off! i have a hemorrhage again and it is paramount that i rest and therefore wont be able to come and do these already rescheduled U.S shows which are due to start this friday in atlantic city.

the fact is i have never been able to fully recover from any of the problems that ive had and then continue to rest even once im recovered, because of my touring commitments. ive been offered the chance to not tour at all to save anything like this from happening again, but i simply hate letting you down. although now im having to let you down once again through no fault of my own really. if i continue to pick up everything before i have properly conquered these problems and nipped them in the bud. i will be totally and utterly f****d. singing is literally my life, its my hobbie, my love, my freedom and now my job. I have absolutely no choice but to recuperate properly and fully, or i risk damaging my voice forever. i have great confidence in believing you know how much this upsets me, how seriously i take it and how truly devastated and annoyed i am by this. wanting to do something so bad and not being able to is the most frustrating thing as im sure you know! my voice is weak and i need to build it back up. I’m gonna be starting up vocal rehab as soon as, and start building my over all stamina in my voice, body and mind. i will be back and im gonna smash the ball out the park once im touring again. i apologise from the bottom of my heart, sincerely i do. i know its not only disappointing because of the show, but its plane tickets, hotel bookings, birthdays, anniversaries and time wasted. but please have faith in me that this is the only thing i can do to make sure i can always sing and always make music for you to the best of my ability. truly yours and yours only forever, adele xx

    sad. i hope she takes this as a sign…STOP SMOKING!

  2. 2

    I guess her drinking problem is getting out of control.

  3. 3

    How many damn health problems can a 22 year old have for god sakes.

  4. 4

    I thnk that singing those emotionally sad songs all the time really takes their toll. "Someone Like You" makes me feel bad for this obese young woman who dresses like and unfashionale middle aged woman. And if she does smoke, then she doesn't respect her own voice and talent. Sad situation.

  5. 5

    She can always lose weight it she chooses but she can't get new lungs. What a God given blessing her voice is but she must stop smoking. She eventually won't be able to breathe, let alone sing.

  6. 6

    In agreement with other posters… hopefully she'll consider doing something about her smoking. As addictive as it is, others have been able to quit, and I'm sure she could get the best help possible! hope you feel better boo!!!!

  7. 7

    Sad, I hope she recovers fully. Her problem isn't from smoking losers. If she wants to smoke, she can. I am a singer and have been smoking for three years. It doesn't do what is happening to this phenomenal woman.

  8. 8

    She really needs to quit smoking and drinking. She shouldn't have these many health problems this young. She also reportedly drank four bottles of wine in one night to write the songs on 21? That is just too much and will definitely take a toll…

  9. 9

    she better do that than sing hoooooooorribly like she did in the Itunes festival. honestly, her songwriting is amaaaaaazing, but her voice needs to get trainned and smoothen a little. if she achiueves that, she'll be one of the best singers of history!

  10. 10

    The reason she's having so many problems with her throat and lungs is because of her smoking. She would have healed a LONG time ago if she didn't continue to do so much damage with the smoking. All the "therapy" in the world isn't going to save her voice as long as she is not doing anything about the root cause and largest contributor to the damage.
    We love you, Adele…now quit that disgusting, damning habit so we can hear you sing for a long time to come!

  11. 11

    i so called it.

    1 - I hope she'll get well. I wish her the best.
    2 - People who call her fat are horrible. She's one of the most beautiful girl I've seen. So much beautiful than any of those skiny bitches from Hollywood.
    3 - Stop smoking isn't that easy as it sounds. People need to understand that nicotin produces a quimical addiction. It's one of the most difficult things you could do in your life.

  13. 13

    lets see, smoking, heavy drinking, and diet…I've said it before and I'll say it again, she does not take care of herself. It's very sad.

    Re: JulieAndrewsWorshiper – Singing karaoke at the local bars doesn't make you a singer. Good luck with lung cancer down the road — at least you look cool to all the local rednecks.

  15. 15

    God why are people being so rude about her weight? Thats not the issue. The issue is her throat/voice. Obviously the smoking isn't going to help. I'm a smoker and believe me, it does cause you to get throat infections easier. But it's also addictive, VERY ADDICTIVE haha. Lets just hope she heals fully and is able to quit smoking so she can wow everyone again with her amazing voice and songs :D

    she will be dead in a year…smoking and drinking..going winehouse…just sayin/
