Sam Smith has canceled his Australian tour after suffering from a vocal chord hemorrhage Monday night, the Grammy-winning “Stay With Me” singer announced on his Instagram account Tuesday.

“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,” he wrote. “I am so sorry to all who have bought tickets, I truly am.”

The canceled dates of Smith’s tour include shows in Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth. Smith, however, says they will “be announcing re-arranged dates very shortly.” As of Tuesday, he’s still scheduled to perform in Tokyo May 7. See his Instagram below.
