Sam Smith Forced To Cancel Dates Due To Vocal Cord Hemorrhage

(Radio.com) Vocal powerhouse Sam Smith has entered into the worst possible case scenario: he's temporarily exhausted his voice. The timing comes just as Smith was touring through Australia, and now he's had to cancel a string of dates there in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perty.

Smith announced the news on Instagram. 'I am deeply, deeply saddened to tell my Australian fans, I have to cancel my Australian tour," he wrote. "I have been vocally exhausted for a while now however last night in Sydney I had a small hemorrhage on my vocal chords.

"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." See the post here.
