Adele - Adele Cancels Tour, Cites 'Haemorrhage' On Vocal Chord

Adele has cancelled her upcoming US tour after being struck down with a haemorrhage on her vocal chord. The singer, whose second album '21' spent over three months at the top of the Billboard 200 Chart, has been forced to pull out of large shows in Atlantic City, New Jersey, Nashville and Miami.
A statement on the singer's website read, "Adele has been advised by doctors that she'll need an extended rest period in order to begin to recuperate properly. Further details to follow regarding these cancelled dates". On her personal blog, the Grammy-winner claimed she was "heartbroken", adding, "It's ridiculous i know! i can't believe it myself. i follow all the advice I'm given and stick to regimes, rules and practices to the best of my ability but it seems to simply not be enough" The news comes after Adele was forced to cancel some U.S. shows in April because of laryngitis. She added, "I have absolutely no choice but to recuperate properly and fully, or I risk damaging my voice forever". The 'Rolling in the Deep' star managed to complete a recent UK tour, which included several dates at London's Royal Albert Hall.
As of September 2011, global sales for Adele's '21' are estimated at 10 million copies. The singer's debut album '19' has sold around 4 million copies worldwide.
