Sam Smith suffered a hemorrhage to his vocal cords last week in Australia. Doctors had ordered the 22 year old British singer to stop performing, hoping to avoid any future damage. Sam was forced to cancel four shows in Australia and now it appears he will also have to cancel his sold out shows in Japan and The Philippines.
Mr. Smith made the announcement via Instagram Monday night, expressing his frustration to fans. The damage may be worse than initially thought and Sam is seeking specialized treatment in the U.S.
Sam is hoping to get back on track as soon as possible and is expected to resume his tour in Alabama, USA on May 15.
