"I'm really frustrated. I was hoping with a week's rest I'd be better to sing again straight away," Adele said in a statement. "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." Adele initially postponed only the first four dates of her U.S. trek and planned to return to the stage tomorrow night in San Francisco. However, a visit to an Otolaryngology specialist in Los Angeles was followed with doctor's orders for "absolute voice rest" for the next few weeks. As consolation though, "Plans to reschedule these cancelled tour dates are being investigated." Presumably that means Scotland Yard is on the case.
