‘I’m Sorry. I’m Devastated’
Just two days after Adele announced she wouldn’t be touring again (ever) on completion of her current world tour, due to end in Wembley Stadium this weekend, the 29-year-old singer delivered news that she had to cancel her final dates.
In an emotional post across her Facebook and Instagram pages, Adele admitted that she’s been struggling with vocal chord problems, writing: ‘on medical advice I simply am unable to perform over the weekend. To say I’m heartbroken would be a complete understatement.’
Over 100,000 fans were expected to watch her this weekend at her Wembley finale and are waiting to find out if the shows will be rescheduled or their tickets simply refunded.
The singer even admitted to being ‘so desperate’ to finish her tour that she ‘even considered miming.’
Having wrote this heartfelt letter, it’s clear to see that Adele did not take this decision lightly, saying:
‘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 life drastically in every way to make sure I got through this tour that started at the beginning of last year. To not be able to finish it, is something I’m really struggling to come to terms with. It’s as if my whole career has been building up to these four shows.’
Since the announcement, Adele has had overwhelming support from her fans, who have posted messages on Twitter like:
We hope Adele’s voice gets better soon and that she still has some shows in her before she retires forever, especially after she announced that she wanted her finals shows to be in London because ‘I don’t know if I’ll ever tour again.’
It’s been four-and-a-half years since her last UK concert so here’s hoping.
