British singer Sam Smith is suffering from vocal cord hemorrhage, and has been ordered to stop working until he recovers.
Unfortunately, he had to cancel four of his Australia concerts on the following dates:
April 28 -- Hordern Pavilion, Sydney
April 30 -- Margaret Court Arena, Melbourne
May 1 -- AEC Theatre, Adelaide, SA
May 4 -- HBF Stadium
In his Instagram account, the Grammy award-winning artist told his 3.6 million followers (published as is):
“I am deeply, deeply saddened to tell my Australian fans, I have to cancel my Australian tour. I have been vocally exhausted for a while now however last night in Sydney I had a small haemorrhageï¿½on my vocal chords. The doctors have told me I need to fully rest until my vocal chords have healed, otherwise this could become a huge long-term issue. I am so sorry to all who have bought tickets, I truly am. We will be announcing re-arranged dates very shortly. This kills me.”
According to concert producer MMI, the Philippine concert of Sam Smith will push through.
A source from MMI informed PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) that the management of the British singer told them yesterday, April 28, that there are no plans of cancelling the May 10 concert in Manila.
On December 2014, it was previously announced that Sam Smith will bring his In The Lonely Hour Tour to the Mall of Asia Arena.
During this year's Grammy Awards, he bagged four Grammys: Best New Artist, Best Pop Vocal Album, Song of the Year and Record of the Year.
