Adele cancels another round of U.S. tour dates
Never mind, ticket holders, you'll have to find someone like Adele. Thanks to a throat condition, the British songstress has had to cancel yet another round of U.S. tour dates.
Adele, the 23-year-old phenom who owned U.S. Billboard charts this past summer with her second album and lead single "Rollin' in the Deep," announced Tuesday that a hemorrhaged vocal cord had benched her.
"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," she said in a statement.
A lengthy recuperation has been advised, forcing Adele to miss engagements in cities, including Miami and Austin, Texas. Those dates were postponed from a previous booking in June, also canceled.
The Ministry was lucky enough to catch the singer at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas in August. Here's wishing Adele a speedy recovery, loaded with her favorite comfort food, "Basketball Wives."
