Fans of British singer Adele found out first through social media that the Hello singer has canceled the two final shows of her tour called The Finale. The singer told her fans through a heart tugging post that her her vocal cords were damaged and is unable to complete the final two stops of her tour. Earlier, she hinted to fans that this tour may be her last.
During this tour, Adele performed over 120 times around the world. Her last stop was supposed to be four shows at Wembley Stadium in London, but now that has been cut in half. She told fans though her post that during the first two shows at her final stop, she struggled to make it all the way through the concert. In a post on Twitter, Adele said that if she continued with the final two shows, she did not think she would be able to make it all the way through the concerts. That post also went out on her website and Instagram.
True to her fans, the singer was unwilling to lip-sync. According to The Washington Post, she stated that the doctors had already used all the aids and steroids for her voice the they dare.
The 15-time Grammy winner shared a handwritten note to fans in her first two Wembley shows’ concert programs telling of her of her mixed feelings about touring. The singer stated that touring is something that she really does not like. Adele called herself a homebody and the tour was for her fans, not for her. She added that since she does not know if she will ever tour again, she wanted the last shows to be at home, London.
It is not the way Adele wanted to end her world tour. She emphasized to her fans that canceling her final two shows was beyond heartbreaking.
Long-time fans will remember that this is not the first time Adele has had issues with her vocal cords. She had to cancel over a dozen shows during her tour in 2011 due to vocal cord hemorrhage. That time she had to have laser microsurgery to restore her voice. There is no word if she will have to undergo surgery again.
Adele has asked her fans with tickets for forgiveness and she did not totally close the door on maybe rescheduling the final two shows. However, if they cannot reschedule, tickets will be refunded.
