Adele‘s reign atop global charts since her critically and commercially acclaimed ’21’ was released has seen the ‘Rolling In the Deep’ songstress roll in impressive accolades.
However, the gain and consequent maintenance of such success is seemingly coming with a price. For, not too long after resuming her postponed trek due to vocal damage and fatigue, the British beauty has been forced to curtail her tour plans yet again due to the recurring condition.
Find out what dates were affected and read Adele’s full statement regarding the matter after the jump:
“singing is literally my life, its my hobbie, 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 im 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, and start building my over all stamina in my voice, body and mind. i will be back and im gonna smash the ball out the park once im touring again. i apologise from the bottom of my heart, sincerely i do. i know its not only disappointing because of the show, but its plane tickets, hotel bookings, birthdays, anniversaries and time wasted. but please have faith in me that this is the only thing i can do to make sure i can always sing and always make music for you to the best of my ability. truly yours and yours only forever, adele xx”

Kudos to Adele who, much like fellow diva Christina Aguilera, is taking the proper steps to preserve their instruments. Hopefully fellow belters in the industry follow suit. The Pattis, Gladys, Tinas, and Arethas of the world didn’t get to their golden ages (and still be able to do what they do) without proper treatment of their tools.
