LON­DON» Grammy Award win­ner Adele can­celed two sold-out week­end shows at Lon­don’s Wem­b­ley Sta­dium, telling fans early Satur­day that her vo­cal cords were dam­aged and that she was ad­vised by a doc­tor not to per­form.

In a state­ment to her fans on so­cial me­dia, Adele said she con­sid­ered go­ing ahead with her Satur­day night per­for­mance but didn’t think she would have been able to make it through the show and didn’t want to “crum­ble” on stage.

“I’m so des­per­ate to do them that I’ve even con­sid­ered mim­ing, just to be in front of you and be with you,” she wrote. “But I’ve never done it and I can­not in a mil­lion years do that to you. It wouldn’t be the real me up there.”

The an­nounce­ment came at the end of a 15-month tour. Adele said re­funds will be avail­able, if the shows can’t be resched­uled.

“I’m sorry, I’m dev­as­tated,” she said. “I’m sorry. I love you. I’m so sorry. Please for­give me.”
