LONDON (VIP NEWS) — Sam Smith has been diagnosed with a hemorrhage to his vocal cords, and he’s been ordered to stop performing until he`s healthy.
The British soul singer got the bad news while on tour in Australia, where all his upcoming shows have now been canceled, including a scheduled appearance Sunday night at the TV industry’s annual Logie Awards.
And now it looks like Sam Smith will be out of commission for nearly two months.
On Instagram Thursday morning, he regretfully announced to his 3.7 million followers that he will undergo vocal surgery that will render him unable to serenade audiences for 6-8 weeks.
Smith naturally expressed that he is “getting really nervous” for the surgery, but is confident that it will allow him to “sing like never before.” He also noted that he is “dreading the next month,” as he’ll be completely banned from speaking a word.
Smith’s official web page has listed his shows in Japan, the Philippines, France, and Monaco as canceled, scheduling his return for June 3 in the U.K. –According to Billboard
