NEW YORK - SEPTEMBER 17:  Adele performs onstage during 2009 VH1 Divas at Brooklyn Academy of Music on September 17, 2009 in New York City. 

"I'm really frustrated,” says the British singer.

British singer Adele has scrapped the remaining nine dates of her sold-out North American tour due to laryngitis.  

She already had postponed five shows under doctor's orders following her recent diagnosis. While resting in Los Angeles, she met with an otolaryngology specialist who determined it was imperative that she take the next few weeks to recover.
"I'm really frustrated. I was hoping with a weeks rest I'd be better to sing again straight away,” she said in a statement Friday. “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, love Adele"
Plans to reschedule the canceled tour dates will be provided when available.
