Playing Make You Feel Our Love: Fans Rally Behind Adele After She Cancels Concerts

Hundreds gathered outside London's Wembley Stadium and held their own concert Sunday evening, belting out the Grammy winner's hits.

"So much love here tonight," one fan wrote on social media.

The Wembley shows scheduled for Saturday and Sunday were both axed after the “Rolling in the Deep” singer posted a lengthy and emotional statement on Twitter.

The concerts were to mark the end of her hugely successful “25 World Tour,” which kicked off last year. She has performed 121 gigs since it began. 

"I went to see my throat doctor this evening because my voice didn’t open up at all today and it turns out I have damaged my vocal cords," she wrote in the statement. "And on medical advice I simply am unable to perform over the weekend. To say I’m heartbroken would be a complete understatement. I’m already maxed out on steroids and aids for my voice. I’ve considered doing Saturday night's show but it’s highly unlikely I’d even make it through the set and I simply can’t crumble in front of you all and walk out on you in that way.

"I’m so desperate to do them that I’ve even considered miming, just to be in front of you and be with you. But I’ve never done it and I cannot in a million years do that to you. It wouldn’t be the real me up there. I’m sorry. I’m sorry for your disappointment. I’m sorry for the nights you would have had with your loved ones and the memories you would have made together. I’m sorry for the time and money you’ve spent organizing your trips."

The Wembley concerts were to also be recorded for a special DVD called Adele Live 2017: The Finale, as a way to celebrate the London-born singer’s homecoming to the city’s largest stadium.

British media has reported that Adele now stands to lose millions in the sales of the DVD due to the cancellation of the shows.

She had already performed two gigs inside the iconic arena and was set to film the final two concerts.

The “Hello” singer has also hinted that she may not tour again. Inside the program of her current tour, she expressed her disdain for being on the road.

“Touring is a peculiar thing, it doesn’t suit me particularly well," she said. "I’m a real homebody and I get so much joy in the small things. Plus I’m dramatic and have a terrible history of touring."
