ADELE has been forced to cancel her U.S. tour . . . for the second time . . . because her voice is messed up. This time, she has a hemorrhage in her vocal chord.
--She has posted a long apology on her site . . . saying that if she doesn't take a, quote, "extended rest period" now, she could permanently damage her voice.
--She explains, quote, "If I continue to pick up everything before I have properly conquered these problems and nipped them in the bud, I will be totally and utterly [effed] . . . I have absolutely no choice but to recuperate properly and fully, or I risk damaging my voice forever.
--"I have great confidence in believing you know how much this upsets me, how seriously I take it and how truly devastated and annoyed I am by this . . . I will be back and I'm gonna smash the ball out the park once I'm touring again."
(--You can find her full message at Adele.tv.)
--Adele's 10-city tour was supposed to kick off on October 7th in Atlantic City . . . and run through a gig in Texas on October 21st. All the shows were sold out.
--She also canceled a bunch of U.S. dates back in June when she came down with laryngitis. All those shows were sold out, too.
--There's no word when she might be able to return to the road.
