Adele cancels US tour

The chart topper has been forced to cancel her tour of the US due to illness.

The Someone Like You star was preparing to kick off her US tour on October 7th but due to a haemorrhage on her vocal chords she is unable to perform.

Doctors have advised the 23-year-old that she needs more rest, which follows the need to cancel dates of her UK tour due to laryngitis. 

Adele apologised to her fans across the pond in a statement, saying: "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.

The 21 star recently released the video for her smash hit Someone Like You but fans in the US will now have to wait a while to hear it live.
