Sam Smith wowed his Brisbane audience on April 25 but the singer had to cancel his last four Australian tour dates because of a nasty vocal cord haemmorhage that left him unable to sing or talk.
Now the crooner has told fans on his Instagram that the condition has gotten worse.
“I am very upset to announce that I have been battling to get my vocal cords better the last 10 days but unfortunately they haven’t recovered and I am going to need surgery,” he wrote.
“I have my operation booked for next week, so getting really nervous. But by doing this in 8 weeks time I’m gonna be able to sing like never before so it’s worth it.
“Dreading the next month thou, I can’t speak for THREE WEEKS after the op.”
Previously, Sam said he was “deeply saddened” to cancel the last four dates of his Australia tour on doctor’s orders.
“I have been vocally exhausted for a while now, however last night in Sydney I had a small haemorrhage on my vocal cords,” Sam explained in late April.
“I’m so sorry to all who have bought tickets, I truly am.”
Get well soon, Sam!
