Sad news for Sam Smith fans in Australia as the soul singer has been diagnosed with a hemorrhage to his vocal chords and he won’t be able to make the scheduled tour dates this week.
Now, the winner of the British breakthrough act has been restricted to perform until he goes back to top shape.
If fans are wondering if the tour dates will be rescheduled, no official announcements have been made by Sam Smith and his representatives.
The singer is also scheduled to appear in TV industry’s annual Logie Awards on Sunday but he would not be able to participate according to Billboard .
Upset that he won’t be able to entertain fans who are expecting him this week, Sam Smith took it to his Instagram account to also apologize for the inconvenience.
“I am deeply, deeply saddened to tell my Australian fans, I have to cancel my Australian tour,” Smith says in a message he shared on Instagram.
“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 chords 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,” he said.
Smith was still able to perform last Saturday at Brisbane’s Riverstage and last Monday at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion, where he is supposed to perform one more time on April 28.
Here are the cancelled Sam Smith tour dates in Australia.
