If you were hoping to catch British singing sensataion, Adele, this year, we’re sorry to tell you that you’re out of luck.
Cancelling her entire 2011 tour and all promotional appearances due to more vocal problems, a statement was released yesterday explaining that the songstress will now undergo throat surgery: “It is with deep regret that Adele has been forced to cancel her remaining live dates and promotional appearances in 2011. She is to undergo surgery to alleviate the current issues with her throat and a full recovery is expected. As a result, doctors have ordered her to rest her voice and completely recuperate before looking to schedule any work commitments.”
Of course, this isn’t the first time Adele’s been forced to call off commitments: earlier this year, the powerhouse had to kibosh her North American tour (yet again) after a “vocal hemorrhage” took precedence, which sounds terrible.
All ticket holders will receive refunds, and considering Adele is a pinnacle of the ever-turbulant music industry, we can probably assume that provided the doctors succeed at doing their jobs, we’ll hear more from the singer in the new year. (And when you think about it, what a terrific basis it could be for her follow-up album.)
