Adele cancels U.S. tour

Adele-face-forwardFans anticipating Adele’s U.S. return this fall just got a dose of disappointment.

The wildly popular British songbird has canceled her upcoming 10-city tour – including Oct. 16 at the Fox Theatre – due to a hemorrhage in her vocal cord.

This is the second time Atlantans have been denied the chance to see the “Rolling in the Deep” singer live; she postponed a series of dates this summer – including a stint at The Tabernacle – because of vocal problems.

“Singing is literally my life, it’s my hobbie [sic], my love, my freedom and now my job. I have absolutely no choice but to recuperate properly and fully, or I risk damaging my voice forever,” Adele said in a statement.

She just finished a tour of the U.K. and was preparing for the Oct. 7 U.S. launch in Atlantic City, N.J. when her throat issues resurfaced.

Doctors have advised her to take an extended period of rest “in order to begin to recuperate properly.”

Refunds are available at point of purchase, but no other information is available yet about rescheduled dates.

Adele’s sophomore record, “21,” was recently certified triple platinum thanks to the enduring radio success of “Rolling in the Deep.” Her current single from the album, the poignant ballad “Someone Like You,” sits at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.

The girl can afford to shed a few pounds, just taking off the make up would get her half way there

Kay, you are a carcass fit for hounds. If you don’t know what this means, educate yourself and read a little Shakespeare before making personal attacks against people you don’t know. Beauty comes in many forms and you, Kay, are ugly to the bone.

kay, you're cruel

Kay, even if you were “perfect” in every way physically, you need a rehab emotionally. Ever thought about therapy? I would presume you’re very young to be criticizing another woman on her appearance.

HEEEY! Leave Kay alone! Freedom of Speech!…applies to everyone! If you don’t like it, you have the feedom to sit alone in your living room, eating bon-bons, and hating men who didn’t want you first!!

Spanky and Kay – you both are chumps! You’re probably some pimply-faced, 4 foot nothing little nerd that gets your kicks from insulting others. You’re probably taking out your frustrations relating to your mom or your wife being some 487 lbs gargoyle on Adele. Grow up and get a life!

People like Kay and Spanky are angry at the world because they’re nobodys. Adele is the hottest thing out there right now. She actually has a great voice, as opposed to Britney Spears, Kanye West, J Lo, etc., etc. who do nothing but lip sync.

She has such a lovely voice. I think she is a smoker, bad bad bad. I hope she takes care of herself, and doesn’t emulate Amy Winehouse.

I love Adele! Hope she is better soon – Third time’s a charm!

The lyrics to the song are in no way worthy of the acclaim the song has received, but the chorus is song well.

And people would much be around the “fat” Adele, as some of you call her, than the nasty, ugly, no-talent Britney Spears.

This girl is too fat to be entertaining and I am willing to wager all these white knights taking up for here on this forum are just as fat, or fatter, than she is. FATTY

I don’t think she feels welcome here, so she chooses not to come.

Hey, she is doing the prudent thing and taking care of her voice. You know she is not happy to have to cancel the tour.

Adele is awesome. Keep eating cotton balls, Kay, maybe one day you’ll lose that bad attitude.

Adele cancelled Tabernacle (and other small venues) so she could reschedule to a bigger venue (the Fox….and other similiarly sized). Now that the larger venue was a hot ticket as she became EVEN more popular ($133 on stubhub) she will reschedule at Phipps (and the like on the tour).

If this happens, then I am DONE with that FAT F-IN BITCH!

Snitzi, I'll bet you are as ugly as they come. I'm slim and pretty, and I adore Adele.

Just because you may be slimmer than Adele doesn’t make you more attractive.
