Adele, the best-selling artist this year to date, had to cancel the final nine dates of her U.S. tour due to laryngitis, Live Nation announced today.

This includes the British singer’s sold-out Tabernacle date originally scheduled for June 17. The Atlanta concert sold out its entire 2,500 seat inventory almost immediately in February.

How hot are the seats four months later?

Stubhub tickets for that show (before they were taken down) were starting today at a whopping $350 apiece though face value of the tickets was a mere $27.50 ($39.50 after fees.)

“I’m really frustrated,” Adele wrote in a press release. “I was hoping with a weeks rest I’d be better to sing again straight away. However there is absolutely nothing I can do but take the doctors advice and rest some more.  I’m so sorry.  See you soon, love Adele”

Live Nation said ticketholders should hang on to their tickets for now. Management is working on rescheduling the dates.

Her single “Rolling in the Deep” has been a breakthrough phenomenon on multiple radio formats, this week hitting No. 1 on the top 40 charts after topping the adult alternative charts. It’s currently being played in Atlanta on rock station Dave FM, top 40 Star 94, soft pop station B98.5, top 40 Q100 and R&B/hip-hop/pop hybrid Wild 105.7. The single has sold more than 3 million copies in download form. Dave is also playing her follow-up single “Rumour Has It.”

Her album “21″ has been No. 1 for nine weeks on the U.S. charts and has sold more than 1.8 million copies to date.

Big girl should hit a gym while she’s resting, maybe that would help her voice too. LMAO

These tickets were being resold at over $300 each and now all those people are just going to get refunded the lousey $27 sticker price.

Maybe she lost her voice singing the same lyrics over and over. The song rumor has it is AWEFUL! A constant repete of the same lyric.

Typical overly compressed pop recording of little sonic value. Who in their right mind would pay $300 for this? If the girl can really sing she needs a new manager, an new A&R guy with a new engineer who knows what he is doing. This deserves nothing more than 64K mp3 playback.

Scott – you probably look like someone’s foot so shut the f-ck up. You cruel a-hole.

Adele is an EXTREMELY talented vocalist and song writer, and she could give a rats ass what anyone thinks. She is taking it to the bank…and justifiably so.

Someone should inform Scott that LMAO is very outdated, as opposed to the very talented Adele who is very much in demand. And, Jeff – perhaps you can spend your free time taking some spelling lessons, which would be much appreciated by your fellow bloggers.

Stubhub (and the like brokers) actually refund the full amount that the tickets were purchased through/from them for.

Now, if you bought your tickets off eBay/Craigslist/etc., then you’re probably screwed.

Rolling in the Deep is beautifully song. She has heart in that song. It’s a shame she’s only 23 because she looks 33.

Tickets didn’t sell out! Adele kept them all just so she could gouge all of you cows & heffers on Stubhub so she could afford groceries for the next day. Who gets laryngitis and cancels concerts two weeks in advance? Even the obese girl from Wilson Philips with all of that back fat would’ve shown up for her snack tray! This just makes me sick.

Just Glaze – like the donut Adele loves! Oh wait, that’s glazeD… that D is just silent, unlike me.

I bet I know what happened. She knew that the demand was much more then the Taberbacle can hold (or other similar sized venues on this tour). She probably paid a cancellation fee for this one and the others.

She will come back and play Phillips, sell it out and make 20 times the $$ doing the gig. I was going to go but didnt want to pay over $100. I figured if the tickets are over $300 on stubhub then she woudl be crazy not to do another tour of bigger venues 6 months later an dthat I would wait. She got out of doing the gigs by having her doctor “advise her not to”. That b!tch is smart (or her handlers are). Well I saved some money this time! Going out for drinks tonight!!!! Adele back in 3-4 months at bigger venue (I will be front row).

You heard from me… John Rocker

She is good, never heard of her but looked her up
And for all the fat jokers here, she is a little heavy but nothing compared to the rest of this fat lazy nation. Go workout eat right and get jobs, this nation is awful, just look at photos from 60-70-80’s compared to now, this country should be ashamed.

Always nice to see poser sheeple Obama voters getting ripped off and coming to this blog to whine and moan. How’s hope and change working out for you? Once again you get what you let yourselves be brainwashed into voting for, whether it’s your taste in politics or music.

The ever increasing levels of gullibility in society have me seriously considering entering the scalping business….the yields here are hundreds of times those of dividends or the bond market.

Really?

@Terry, I agree, the AJC seems to condone this type of ignorance. Why was this article set up to accept comments? So that the lame and lonely could make mean and hateful comments about a truly talented person? Seems like it. I hope she does reschedule at a large venue, because I’d love to have the opportunity to see what I’m sure is going to be an amazing show.

I’ve had to listen to “21″ more times than I can tell you – and many more times than I’d want to – because it goes with my job. I try to pretend there’s cotton in my ears – she alternately sounds like she’s gargling, retching, or just plain all-out vomiting, and it literally gets on my nerves. But that’s showbiz, eh?

Seriously? Ya’ll that are so superficial to write about her weight? Are you kidding me? Oh.. wait I get it.. people always have “balls of steel” when they are talking on a blog. Grow up and try to get a life while your at it. As you watch her career sky rocket to the top at 21 and any damn weight she desires. It’s embarrassing that you are even allowed such rhetoric or that I even respond.

I see all the negative comments, and this coming from a city that has 4 radio station that play all the same music and that duplicates the same station on the dial. Atlanta is so backwards, get to a real city that has radio station, but clear channel has pretty much killed that….
