The singer was forced to cancel the final two shows of her 123 stop world tour this week, due to problems with her vocal chords.
Adele has issued an apology on her Twitter, stating that if the two shows at London’s Wembley Stadium can’t be resheduled, refunds will be offered to ticket-holders.
The cancelled shows were two of the four final London shows. Adele has been touring since February 2016 in support of her successful album 25. As of now, the record has sold an estimated 20 million copies worldwide.

In a handwritten note printed in programmes of her Wembley shows, Adele described her tour as “an absolute thrill and pleasure”, but also stated that she doesn’t handle being out of home for so long very well and might never tour again. She wrote: “Touring is a peculiar thing. It doesn’t suit me particularly well. I’m a real homebody and I get so much joy in the small things. Plus I’m dramatic and have a terrible history of touring.”
Adele emphasized that the Wembley shows are special to her as they may be her last. “I don’t know if I’ll ever tour again and so I want my last time to be at home.” she wrote in her programme.
