This is unfortunate for Sam Smith fans in Australia: the bonafide star has been forced to cancel remaining tour dates Down Under due to a “small haemorrhage” in his vocal cords. He explains in a brief statement:
I am deeply, deeply saddened to tell my Australian fans, 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 haemorrhage on my vocal chords. The doctors have told me I need to fully rest until my vocal chords have healed, otherwise this could become a huge long-term issue. I am so sorry to all who have bought tickets, I truly am. This kills me.
Among the appearances that Smith will miss is the 57th TV WEEK Logie Awards. As far as the tour dates (which are below), he’s working to get a new schedule for the fans there…any information regarding ticket refunds can be found here.
