NEW YORK (AP) - British singer Adele has postponed five dates on her tour of North America due to laryngitis.
Columbia Records said in a statement Monday the 23-year-old Grammy winner was diagnosed last Thursday in Minneapolis, where doctors ordered immediate rest. Her show was canceled.
She performed in Denver on Saturday, but her show in Salt Lake City on Sunday was canceled at the last minute "when her illness worsened."
The tour will resume June 4 in San Francisco.
Performances in Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Portland, Ore., and Vancouver, British Columbia, have been rescheduled.
Adele's new album, "21," has been at the top of the music charts in the U.S.
