Get Well Adele

BREAKING: Adele cancels remainder of hometown tour, citing strained vocal chords

Traveling millennials and Adele super-fans hit the roof early Saturday morning when the singer emailed ticket holders to say she is devastated to cancel the remaining performances of her tour on the eve of a major concert at Wembley Stadium (where we are stranded in a run-down hotel overlooking the stadium right now). The singer stated that, “On medical advice I simply am unable to perform over the weekend. To say I’m heart broken would be a complete understatement.”

The record breaking 98,000 fans for each of the remaining concerts, deemed by Adele as her “finale,” was cut short due to strained vocal chords. Fans immediately started sending well wishes to the singer after her “devastating” news.

But not everyone was completely sympathetic:

Here is the statement that was sent out to all ticket holders from Adele’s team at 1:44AM on Saturday:

Hello there,

We’re getting in touch with important information about your upcoming evening with Adele at Wembley Stadium. Please read on for a message from Adele.

I don’t even know how to start this. The last two nights at Wembley have been the biggest and best shows of my life. To come home to such a response after so long away doing something I never thought I could pull off but did has blown me away. However, I’ve struggled vocally both nights. I had to push a lot harder than I normally do. I felt like I constantly had to clear my throat, especially last night. I went to see my throat doctor this evening because my voice didn’t open up at all today and it turns out I have damaged my vocal cords. And on medical advice I simply am unable to perform over the weekend. To say I’m heart broken would be a complete understatement. I’m already maxed out on steroids and aids for my voice. I’ve considered doing Saturday nights show but it’s highly unlikely I’d even make it through the set and I simply can’t crumble in front of you all and walk out on you in that way. I’m so desperate to do them that I’ve even considered miming, just to be in front of you and be with you. But I’ve never done it and I cannot in a million years do that to you. It wouldn’t be the real me up there. I’m sorry. I’m sorry for your disappointment. I’m sorry for the nights you would have had with your loved ones and the memories you would have made together. I’m sorry for the time and money you’ve spent organizing your trips. You know I would not make this decision lightly. I have done 121 shows and I have 2 left. 2 left!!! And they are 2 gigantic shows! Who the fuck cancels a show at Wembley Stadium!? 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 4 shows. I’m writing this as the decision has just this moment been made, so I don’t have any other information, but of course refunds will be available if the shows can’t be rescheduled. There will be more information over the next few days. I’m sorry, I’m devastated.

I’m sorry. I love you I’m so sorry, please forgive me x
