Adele To Have Throat Surgery

I had heard, and reported earlier, that Adele was cancelling her US tour dates for the year, but no explanation was given.  Rumor in the music biz was that she was “allergic” to money, meaning she just wanted to sing and the fame and fortune was getting her down.  Publicly, she had said she had a vocal illness and doctors told her to rest.

Now, in a statement to the media, it says, “It is with deep regret that Adele has been forced to cancel her remaining live dates and promotional appearances in 2011.”

“She is to undergo surgery to alleviate the current issues with her throat and a full recovery is expected. As a result, doctors have ordered her to rest her voice and completely recuperate before looking to schedule any work commitments,” the statement continues.

We certainly wish her well.  Her song, ‘Someone Like You,’ just became the first ballad in three years to top the Billboard Top 100, and to lose those beautiful, future songs of hers would be a huge loss.

You can certainly see why.  Here is ‘Someone Like You.’
