Out Singer Sam Smith Cancels Tour Dates

Out Singer Sam Smith Cancels Tour Dates


'I have been vocally exhausted for a while now,' the 22-year-old Grammy winner explains.

Out singer Sam Smith has been a constant media fixture over the past year, whether the news is about his love life, his multiple Grammy wins, or his recent weight loss. The 22-year-old is now getting a needed break, but not for welcome reasons. A vocal cord hemorrhage has caused Smith to abruptly cancel his Australian tour. Smith explained his situation on Instagram.

"I am deeply, deeply saddened to tell my Australian fans, I have to cancel my Australian tour," Smith wrote. "I have been vocally exhausted for a while now however last night in Sydney I had a small hemorrhage 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."

The singer has had to cancel a string of sold-out shows and television appearances Down Under, but he assures fans he will make up the dates in December.

Smith's Asian tour is set to kick off on May 7 in Tokyo, and he is a scheduled performer at this year's Billboard Music Awards, airing live on ABC May 17. No word yet if those performances will go on.
