British singer Adele, whose '21" is the year's top selling album, has scrapped the remaining nine dates of her sold-out North American tour due to laryngitis.
She already had postponed five shows under doctor's orders following her recent diagnosis. While resting in Los Angeles, she met with an Otolaryngology specialist who determined it was imperative that she take the next few weeks to recover.
"I'm really frustrated. I was hoping with a weeks rest I'd be better to sing again straight away," she said in a statement Friday. "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."
Adele's "21" is the best-selling album this year selling 1,974,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Plans to reschedule the cancelled tour dates will be provided when available.
