Sam Smith just announced he is canceling more tour dates, after suffering a hemorrhage to his vocal cords. The singer’s shows scheduled in Japan (May 7th and 8th) and the Philippines (May 10th) have been canceled. “Very upset about Japan and Manilla. I’ve just left Australia and I’m on my way to the states to see a specialist to see what to do from there,” Smith wrote on Instagram. The Grammy-winner is headed to the US to seek treatment for his vocal injury.
Last week, Smith canceled the remaining dates of his Australia tour. “I am deeply saddened to tell my Australian fans that 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 hemorrhage on my vocal cords,” the singer stated. A doctor ordered Smith to take a break from singing, and at this juncture, it is uncertain when he will be able to return to the stage. The pop singer is scheduled to perform at The Hangout festival on May 15th, and he is also booked for a show in Las Vegas for the Rock in Rio event on May 16th. A few days ago, Smith revealed on social media that he hasn’t spoken in days, since he suffered damage to his vocal cords. The singer was hopeful he would be able to begin singing again really soon, but it appears Smith’s vocals are not improving.
