Sick Adele cancels gigs

Adele has laryngitis and has been forced to cancel shows on her North American tour.

The Rolling In The Deep star has been playing to sell out crowds but fell ill last Thursday and despite trying to struggle on at the weekend she's now had to admit defeat.

The following statement was posted on Adele's website:

Adele has been forced to postpone 5 dates on her current sold-out tour of North America due to laryngitis, she was diagnosed last Thursday in Minneapolis, MN, where doctors ordered immediate rest and postponement of that nights engagement at First Avenue (rescheduled for June 22nd).

Adele performed on Saturday evening in Denver, CO (Ogden Theater) which proved too early a return to the stage. Adele’s show last Sunday evening in Salt Lake City, UT (The Depot) was postponed last minute when her illness worsened. Adele has also been forced to postpone shows in Vancouver, BC (Orpheum Theatre) on May 31, Seattle, WA (Paramount Theatre) on June 1 and Portland, OR (Crystal Ballroom) on June 3.

The singer hopes to resume the tour on Saturday (4th June), when she is due to play in San Francisco, California.
