Adele cancels what might be her last concert event ever


Adele was forced to cancel the final two shows of her world tour due to damaged vocal cords. She was scheduled to perform two more nights at London’s Wembley Stadium, but had to heed the advice of her physician and pull out, telling fans via a Twitter post that she is “devastated” about the cancellation.

“To say I’m heartbroken would be a complete understatement,” she wrote wrote in the Twitter post Friday.

She said the first two Wembley shows she performed this week had been “the biggest and best shows of my life.” She admits that she struggled vocally, however. “I had to push a lot harder than I normally do… it turns out I have damaged my vocal cords,” she explained on the post. “On medical advice, I am simply unable to perform over the weekend.”

Some Twitter followers and fans have reached out to show support, saying they love her and telling the 29-year-old singer to take care of herself.

Other followers expressed concerns about the hotels they booked, saying they can’t get a refund. One user has a solution. @MalachiNorris suggested Adele still do the show, but instead of singing she could tell jokes. According to the fans, Adele is “hilarious” between songs.

The four Wembley shows may be her last ever shows, according to a handwritten note included in programs for the event. In that note, Adele writes: “I wanted my final shows to be in London because I don’t know if I’ll ever tour again.”

She says she’s done 119 shows, and the Wembley shows would have made it 123. According to reports, Adele’s Wednesday concert at Wembley was attended by 98,000 fans, setting a stadium record. Adele wrote that performing in the 100-plus shows “has been hard out an absolute thrill and pleasure to have done.”
