    Sam Smith has been relentlessly touring the globe behind his debut album, In the Lonely Hour, but it now seems all that singing has finally caught up to him. Smith has canceled the remainder of his Australian tour due to a vocal hemorrhage suffered during last night’s show in Sydney.

    “I have been vocally exhausted for awhile now however last night in Sydney I had a small hemorrhage on my vocal cords,” the “deeply saddened” UK crooner explained in an official statement. “The doctors have told me I need to fully rest until my vocal cords have healed, otherwise this could become a huge long-term issue. I am so sorry to all who have bought tickets, I truly am.”

    The dates will reportedly be rescheduled for December, according to Frontier Touring, Smith’s Australian promoters.
