Sam Smith Cancels Dates And Will Have Vocal Cord Surgery

(Radio.com) Sam Smith is off the grid until July, at least when it comes to touring. The singer announced he will cancel more upcoming appearances due to a vocal cord hemorrhage, now including sets at the Billboard Music Awards, Hangout Music Festival, Rock in Rio USA and Red Nose Day, all later this month.

A doctor has advised Smith to undergo suspension microlaryngoscopy surgery, which will knock him out for six to eight weeks. 'Dear all: I am very upset to announce I have been battling to get my vocal cords better the last 10 days but unfortunately they haven't recovered and I am going to need surgery," Smith noted in a press statement.

"I'm so gutted to be missing all the shows and events I was meant to be playing at. The doctors say I will be back in 6-8 weeks and I cannot wait to sing for you all soon." Read more here.
