Adele cancels shows for surgery
Adele has been forced to cancel her 2011 shows in order to 'undergo surgery' on her throat.

The 23-year-old singer has been diagnosed with a vocal cord haemorrhage. Adele will not be able to perform for the rest of the year as a result.

"[Adele] is to undergo surgery to alleviate the current issues with her throat and a full recovery is expected,' read a statement released on her behalf.

'As a result, doctors have ordered her to rest her voice and completely recuperate before looking to schedule any work commitments."

Adele is not happy with having to cancel her shows, which would have seen her performing across the UK this autumn.

"It is with deep regret that Adele has been forced to cancel her remaining live dates and promotional appearances in 2011,' the statement read further.

Adele has had issues with her throat all year long. She cancelled a 10-date tour of US shows earlier this month and was battling illness throughout the summer.

The singer's voice is expected to heal entirely if she rests thoroughly throughout the remainder of the year. Adele will not risk permanent damage to her vocal chords.

"I have absolutely no choice but to recuperate properly and fully, or I risk damaging my voice forever," the songstress said on her website earlier this month when her US performances were cancelled.

"Singing is literally my life - it's my hobby, my love, my freedom and now my job."
