Adele to undergo throat surgery; cancels 2011 live dates & promotional appearances | Music News


After having to cancel a number of shows in the UK and a 10 date tour in the US due to illness and problems with her vocal chord, singer Adele has released a statement via her website informing fans that she is cancelling all the remaining shows for the rest of the year and will undergo throat surgery.

It is with deep regret that Adele has been forced to cancel her remaining live dates and promotional appearances in 2011.
