Sad news for Sam Smith’s Australian fans, as he’s had to cancel the rest of his tour.
The singer was in the middle of the Australian leg of his In The Lonely Hour Tour, having played shows in Auckland, Brisbane and Sydney, but has now cancelled the remainder of his dates.
He was due to play another date in Sydney, along with shows in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth but these have now been rescheduled to December 2015.
Sam Smith said in a statement: “I am deeply, deeply saddened to tell my Australian fans, I have to cancel my Australian tour.
“I have been vocally exhausted for a while now, however last night in Sydney I had a small haemorrhage on my vocal cords.”
He added: “The doctors have told me I need to fully rest until my vocal cords 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.”
As things stand, Sam Smith will still be heading out on his Asian leg of the tour on 7th May, and continuing throughout Europe and America for the remainder.
For now though, Australian fans will be left saddened and disappointed. Get well soon, Sam!
