Adele Cancels Final Shows of Tour: 'I Love You, I'm So Sorry'

Adele has made the difficult decision to cancel the last two shows of her Adele Live 2017 tour.

The 29-year-old singer – who recently hinted that she may never tour again – will not be performing her shows on July 1 and 2 at Wembley Stadium in London, England, as she revealed in an emotional letter to fans on Friday (June 30) on Instagram.

“I don’t even know how to start this,” she wrote. “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,” she continued. “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 an understatement,” she added. “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,” Adele went on. “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 f–k 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 my 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. 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,” she finished.

    She’s batt shytt crazy

    I’ve seen her live and the woman talks a lot. Mostly just random thoughts, trying to be funny and connect with her fans. She doesn’t know how to rest her voice. She should do what Celine Dion does, not speak unless necessary. That’s how she maintains her amazing voice.

    That’s too sad because she has an amazing voice. Adele has had problems with her voice for years. I think her letter was very sincere.
