Sam Smith cancels tour dates after suffering haemorrhage on his vocals chords
Sam Smith has cancelled the remainder of his Australian tour after suffering a haemorrhage on his vocals chords.
The singer has rescheduled the rest of the tour for December of this year and has posted a statement saying he has made the decision to avoid long-term damage to his voice. The singer added that he has been suffering from "vocal exhaustion for a while now".
He said: "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 cords. The doctors have told me I need to fully rest until my vocal cords have healed, otherwise this could become a huge long-term issue. I am so sorry to all who have bought tickets. I truly am. This kills me."
Smith is currently rescheduled to resume touring in Toyko on May 7th. He is booked for a series of UK summer shows as well as V Festival later this year.
