Adele has cancelled the final two shows of her world tour, due to take place at London’s Wembley Stadium this weekend, after damaging her vocal cords.
The “devastated” singer said she had taken the decision on medical advice.
“To say I’m heartbroken would be a complete understatement,” London-born Adele wrote in a Twitter post in the early hours.
She had been due to perform at Wembley on Saturday and Sunday, ending a four-date run at the venue.
In her post, the 29-year-old said her first two Wembley shows this week had been “the biggest and best shows of my life”, but that she had struggled vocally.
Despite the voice problems, Adele’s performances on 28 and 29 June were well-received by critics, with the Guardian describing her as “instinctively charismatic”, the Times as “poignant”, while the Telegraph wrote: “She is such a natural on stage.”
