Adele - Sick Adele Cancels U.s. Tour

British soul sensation Adele has cancelled her upcoming U.S. tour as she continues to battle a throat illness.
The Chasing Pavements hitmaker cancelled a string of gigs in her native Britain last month (Sep11) as she tried to overcome a chest infection, but she has since taken to the stage to complete her remaining U.K. shows.
However, the strain on her voice has become too much and Adele has now scrapped her 10-date American trek, which was due to kick off on Friday (07Oct11) in New Jersey.
Doctors told the Someone Like You star she needed more time to rest and recover after diagnosing her with a vocal cord haemorrhage and revealing she could wreck her voice permanently if she didn't take time to fully recuperate.
In a lengthy post on her website on Tuesday (04Oct11), Adele wrote, "Guys, im (sic) heartbroken and worried to tell you that yet again im experiencing problems with my voice... Singing is literally my life, it's my hobby, 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 I'm 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 (possible), and start building my overall stamina in my voice, body and mind. I will be back and I'm gonna smash the ball out the park once I'm touring again. I apologise from the bottom of my heart, sincerely I do."
It's the third time Adele has disappointed American fans - she cited personal family problems for scrapping tour dates in 2008 and a nasty case of laryngitis shut down her North American tour earlier this year (11).
