British singer Adele cancels tour due to illness

June 5th, 2011 in News

NEW YORK (AP) - British singer Adele has canceled the remaining dates on her North American tour because of her laryngitis.

In a statement Friday, Adele said she was "really frustrated" but "there is absolutely nothing I can do but take the doctor's advice and rest some more."

The announcement comes days after the singer postponed five dates on the tour. She is now canceling the nine remaining shows.

The 23-year-old's sophomore album, "21," is the best-selling album of the year. It has sold close to two million units in America.

Her single, "Rolling In the Deep," is currently No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 charts.

The statement also said that rescheduling the tour dates was "being investigated."
