Adele Cancelled Her Last Two Tour Dates
This past Friday, June 30th, 2017, Adele released a statement announcing that she would be cancelling the final two shows of her world tour, Adele Live. These shows were scheduled to take place at Wembley Stadium in London, U.K. Over 100,000 fans who bought tickets to these sold-out shows will now be refunded, according to Adele's statement.
Fans are upset Adele cancelled her last two tour dates and are asking themselves why Adele cancelled her shows at Wembley. While most of the fans are simply heartbroken, others have expressed anger over travel and accommodation costs.
Why Did Adele Cancel Her Shows At Wembley?
Adele's vocal cord damage is to blame for why Adele cancelled her last two tour dates. Adele Live was scheduled to include 123 performances in total, but the singer's 121 prior performances put a huge strain on her voice. Under her doctor's orders, Adele cancelled her shows at Wembley.
Adele's Vocal Cord Damage
Adele's vocal cord damage may be permanent. Speaking about possible tours in the future, she stated in 2012 that, "My voice has its limits."
This isn't the first time Adele has cancelled tour dates due to her vocal cord damage.
In early October of 2011, Adele announced that she would be undergoing emergency throat surgery due to a vocal hemorrhage. Because of this, Adele cancelled an entire U.S. tour, and several U.K. shows.
Now Adele has stated that she may never tour again. In the Adele Live program for her concert on Wednesday, June 28th, 2017, she wrote: "Touring...doesn't suit me particularly well...I wanted my final shows to be in London because I don't know if I'll ever tour again, and so I want my last time to be at home."
