Adele has been left devastated along with her fans after she had to cancel two of her most important Wembley shows.
Adele has cancelled the final two shows of her world tour, last minute after damaging her vocal chords.
Adele was due to perform at London’s Wembley Stadium this weekend, following her two shows on Wednesday and Thursday.
Adele has been left “devastated” as she’s had to make the decision on medical advice.
Fans have also been left emotional as plans haven’t been made to rehearsal, as of yet.
Adele released a lengthy statement at 1:45am on Saturday morning, it read: “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.
Adele added: “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”
