Adele shared some sad news with her fans on Friday evening. The 29-year-old singer posted on her social media pages that she would have to cancel the last two dates of her world tour. The final two shows of her 123-date tour were scheduled for July 1 and July 2 at Wembley Stadium in London. Adele already performed two shows at Wembley on June 28 and June 29 but had planned for a 4-night run at the famous venue.

Vocal chord damage

Adele stated in her social media posts that she has been struggling vocally during her last two concerts in London. The day after her performance on June 29, Adele went to see her throat doctor because her voice wouldn't open up at all.

The news from her doctor was the worse it could be as he told the singer that she had damaged her vocal chords and could not continue the tour. Adele has tried steroids and other medications, but nothing was helping, and the only thing she could do now is giving her beautiful voice a much-needed rest.

In an emotional post to her fans, it is evident that Adele is beyond devastated to have to cancel the final two shows. She said that there is a chance that the canceled dates will be rescheduled at a later time, but that seems highly unlikely. Adele said "I'm sorry" repeatedly and asked for forgiveness.

In 2011, Adele had surgery on her vocal chords after she experienced a vocal hemorrhage.

The hemorrhage took place during her Adele Live tour, and she had to cancel a number of the tour dates. The concerts that were canceled during that tour were able to be rescheduled.

Adele Live 2016

The current tour, Adele Live 2016, is in support of her latest album "25" which was released on November 20, 2015. The album is Adele's third studio album and was released almost five years after her sophomore album, "21."

The tour kicked off on February 29, 2016, at SSE Arena in Belfast.

Leg 1 of the world tour covered Europe through the end of June. Then on July 5, 2016, the North American leg of Adele's tour began with two concerts in Saint Paul, MN at the Xcel Energy Center. From there, the tour stopped in cities including Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, New York City, Nashville, Miami, Dallas and many more.

Adele is known to put on an amazing live show. No matter how many months she has been on the road, she always treats each performance like it's her one and only. Fans have come to respect the singer and the huge heart and passion that she has for her extraordinary talent.
