"Hello everyone ...specifically everyone in Phoenix and Arizona," she said. "I can't do my show tonight, my second show here. I'm really, really sorry. I've had a cold for a couple days, and I've been pushing through it and I did my show last night and I loved it, but I pushed too hard.”

“I'm really, really, really, really sorry to let anyone down. I’ve enjoyed my tour so much and cancelling shows is not something I want to do," she continued. "I’ve been trying to sing all morning and warming up and nothing is happening. I’m so sorry. It’s the last thing I want to do but I have to look after myself.

“I will reschedule this show I promise you and I will come back and smash it for you. Have a wonderful evening without me.” Fans were quick to offer their sympathies to the singer, who has been on a world tour since February.

Over the weekend Adele had denied reports that she was set to perform at next year’s Superbowl. “I’m not doing the Super Bowl, I mean, come on, that show is not about music. And I don’t really, I can’t dance or anything like that,” she told fans onstage in LA. “They were very kind, they did ask me, but I said no.”
