The English singer needs surgery on his vocal chords and has therefore cancelled all appearances in May and June including NorthSide

At the end of last month Sam Smith suffered a hemorrhage on his vocal cord, and he was forced to cancel shows in Australia, so he could rest his voice.

The singer then went to the US to see a specialist, who in turn recommended en operation, which means Sam Smith isn't allowed to sing before July at the earliest.

In a statement about the cancellations Sam Smith says:

- Dear all: I am very upset to announce I have been battling to get my vocal cords better the last 10 days but unfortunately they haven't recovered and I am going to need surgery. I'm so gutted to be missing all the shows and events I was meant to be playing at. The doctors say I will be back in 6-8 weeks and I cannot wait to sing for you all soon.

The cancellations have already affected shows in Australia, Japan, and the Philippines, and now they will affect shows in the US and large parts of Europe including the UK and NorthSide.

Spokesperson for NorthSide, John Fogde, had the following to say about the cancellation:

- We are incredibly sad that Sam Smith won't be able to recover from surgery before the show at NorthSide. It is such a shame, but obviously his health is the most important thing here and we fully understand that he has to cancel.

So now the search for a new act for the line-up begins, but it is still to early to say, who will be added to the bill as a replacement.
