NEW YORK, June 3 (UPI) -- British singer Adele has canceled the remaining nine dates of her sold-out North American tour due to ongoing illness, Columbia Records said Friday.
Adele recently postponed five shows under doctor's orders when she was diagnosed with laryngitis.
While resting in Los Angeles, the 23-year-old recording artist met with an otolaryngologist who determined it was imperative she take the next few weeks to recover with absolute voice rest, her representatives said.
Adele had intended to resume her tour this week in San Francisco, before learning of her advanced condition.
"I'm really frustrated," she said in a statement Friday. "I was hoping with a week's rest I'd be better to sing again straight away. However, there is absolutely nothing I can do but take the doctor's advice and rest some more. I'm so sorry. See you soon."
Plans to reschedule these canceled tour dates are being explored; more information will be provided when available, Columbia Records said.
Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" is No. 1 on the U.S. record chart this week.
