Adele will tour in the UK in July after finishing her US shows

Adele has postponed a number of shows on her US tour after contracting laryngitis.

A show in Salt Lake City on Sunday (29 May) had to be pulled along with dates in Vancouver, Seattle and Portland.

According to her personal website the tour will resume in San Francisco on Saturday, 4 June.

The London singer has enjoyed huge success in America this year selling more than two million copies of her second album 21.

Following the cancellation of the Minneapolis show last week (27 June) Adele wrote on her website that she was "truly devastated" and asked fans to "forgive" her.

Fans have been told to hold onto their original tickets and asked to keep an eye out for information about when the shows will be rescheduled.

Having explained recently that she wants to avoid playing festival or arena shows, Adele's next appearance in the UK is scheduled for July in London.
