Sam Smith Cancels Tour due to Hemorrhage in Vocal Chords

The English singer, songwriter Sam Smith has cancelled the rest of his Australia tour due to a hemorrhage in vocal cords. The singer, who rose to fame with his 2012 single album, ‘Latch,’ has apologized to his fans and has informed that the decision which he took is only by the doctor’s order.

Sam Smith had to cover four more tours under the Australian leg of his ‘In The Lonely Hour’ Tour, but in an official statement released on Tuesday afternoon, his sufferings by a small hemorrhage on his vocals came to light and reportedly it was in Hordern Pavilion in Sydney on Monday night when the pain got severe and he found out about it.


Sam Smith had already rocked the Auckland and Brisbane stage with his hit numbers like, Stay with Me and The Lonely Hour. He had two shows remaining in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. The four times Grammy award winner is in pain and said that he is deeply saddened by the decision. He also added that he has been vocally exhausted for some time.

Obviously, hemorrhage is not like any other case of throat infection. Smith has been in frequent struggles with his health. In September 2014, Smith had to cancel his Toronto Show because of tonsillitis and in March this year, he had to cancel a gig in Milan because of laryngitis.

Sam Smith wrote, “the doctors have told me I need a fully rest until my vocal chords have healed.” Then in the later statement, he apologized to all his fans who have bought his tickets. Frontier Touring’s who are Sam Smith’s promoters in Australia said that the singer will be back here in December to complete his tour. Sam Smith was also to appear at the Logie Awards on May 3 but now due to his health issues, we are not certain whether the star will make it or not.

There are many singers on the English soil who have suffered vocal disorders by heavy singing and heavy drinking. We just hope that Sam Smith will recover soon and back on stage, as the people of Adelaide are eagerly waiting for him to return.
