Sam Smith has cancelled the remainder of his Australian tour after only performing one show in Brisbane.

Smith has suffered issues with his vocals chords and has had to halt the remainder of his Australian dates, including his guest appearance at the Logie Awards in Melbourne this weekend.

“I am deeply, deeply saddened to tell my Australian fans, I have to cancel my Australian tour,” he said in a statement. “I have been vocally exhausted for a while now however last night in Sydney I had a small haemorrhage on my vocal chords. The doctors have told me I need to fully rest until my vocal chords have healed, otherwise this could become a huge long-term issue. I am so sorry to all who have bought tickets, I truly am. This kills me.”

Smith was due to perform in Sydney tonight.

The cancelled show are:

April 28, Sydney
April 30, Melbourne
May 1, Adelaide
May 4, Perth

Frontier Touring are working with Smith’s management to reschedule the tour for December. Dates will be announced soon.
