After announcing that her current tour would be her swan song, Adele scrapped off her remaining gigs in the United Kingdom.

In an announcement made via her social media accounts, the British singer profusely apologized to her fans for canceling her last two gigs, which were scheduled this weekend at London’s Wembley Stadium. She said she wrecked her vocal cords while performing in the city over the previous days.

“To say I’m heartbroken would be a complete understatement,” she wrote.”I had to push a lot harder than I normally do…it turns out I have damaged my vocal cords. On medical advice, I am simply unable to perform over the weekend.”

A great chanteuse of this millennium, Adele spearheaded chart-topping hits such as “Hello,” “Rolling in the Deep,” “Someone Like You” and “Set Fire to the Rain.”  Gianna Francesca Catolico /ra
