SYDNEY, Australia (CelebrityAccess) — British singer Sam Smith has canceled his planned tour of Australia after suffering from a minor hemorrhage of his vocal chords.
In a post on his website, Smith wrote:
"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 haemorrhage on 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."
The cancellation affects four dates, including shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide. Smith's next scheduled show is May 7th at Studio Coast in Tokyo, Japan.
Frontier Touring, the tour's promoter, said it was working with Smith to schedule new performance dates in December. – Staff Writers
