Award-winning British singer Adele announced on Saturday that she has decided to cancel the last two shows of her current tour, which were supposed to take place at Wembley Stadium. Adele explained that she saw a throat doctor, who advised her not to perform this weekend. “To say I’m heartbroken would be a complete understatement,” she wrote in a letter to her fans that she posted on social media.
Adele told her fans that she has been struggling vocally recently. “I had to push a lot harder than I normally do,” she wrote. “It turns out I have damaged my vocal cords.” Adele was supposed to perform on Saturday and Sunday evening in front of no less than 200,000 fans who traveled from all over Europe to see her. The 29-year-old singer has spent the last 15 months on an international tour and returned to the UK in order to wrap up the tour in front of her home audience.
“I have done 121 shows and I have 2 left,” she continued “2 left!!! And they are 2 gigantic shows! Who the fuck cancels a show at Wembley Stadium!? To not complete this milestone in my career is something I’m struggling to get my head around and I wish that I wasn’t having to write this. I have changed my whole life drastically in every way to make sure I got through this tour.”
