Laryngitis Hits Adele On Her American Tour

From MTV:

Adele has canceled the remainder of her sold-out North American tour due to "ongoing illness," a spokesperson for her label, Columbia Records, announced Friday.

Last week, the British belter was forced to cancel a show in Minneapolis due to a case of laryngitis, but came back to perform a concert in Denver. Then, earlier this week, under doctor's orders, she canceled five West Coast gigs and hoped that her voice would improve with rest. Adele had originally planned to return to the stage on Saturday at San Francisco's Warfield Theatre, but those plans went awry when her vocal condition didn't improve.

"Adele recently postponed five shows under doctor's orders when she was diagnosed with laryngitis," a statement from Columbia read. "While resting in Los Angeles, Adele met with an otolaryngology specialist who determined it was imperative that she take the next few weeks to recover with absolute voice rest."

All told, the final nine dates of her tour will be scrapped.
