Adele Cancels North American Tour

Sad news! Adele has been forced to cancel her North American tour due to an ongoing battle with laryngitis. “I’m really frustrated. I was hoping with a weeks rest I’d be better to sing again straight away,” she wrote on her website today. “However there is absolutely nothing I can do but take the doctor’s advice and rest some more. I’m so sorry.” The vocal problems started in May, causing the Brit to cancel five shows in Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Vancouver and Portland, before a doctor ordered her to step off stage for good.
Despite plenty of good tours scheduled for summer, Adele will clearly be missed. Hopefully fans can see her live stateside before her third album, INXS cover and all, is released next year. Until then, drown your sorrows in a live performance from earlier this year and spend hours of listening to 21 on repeat, then debate your friends over which other Brit you should lend your ears to in the meantime: Katy B, Jessie J, or Ellie Goulding. (We’d go with the latter.)
