The tour will begin again at Perth Arena on November 28 before visiting Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane in early December.

Sam Smith, 23, said in a statement: “Australia, I am so so happy to finally have some good news for you.. I can now announce that my cancelled IN THE LONELY HOUR tour dates have been rescheduled!!

“I’m unbelievably excited to get back onstage and perform for you all again, and I promise it will be so much better than it would have been before when my voice was damaged.

“The past few months have been incredibly difficult, but the support, love and patience my fans have shown me is absolutely unreal. I am so grateful to every one of you. I can’t wait to see you all xxxx.”

He was forced to pull out of his Australian tour on April due to bleeding on his vocal cords.

Sam Smith was halfway through an eight-date tour.


Sam Smith underwent vocal cord surgery at a hospital in Boston last week.

The singer is expected to make a full recovery, Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston said in a statement.

The surgery was performed by Dr. Steven Zeitels, who has carried out the same procedure on Adele, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Lionel Richie.

According to the hospital, Sam Smith’s condition was the result of unstable blood vessels in his vocal cord.

They can rupture and stop people singing.

Sam Smith’s song Stay With Me won Grammys for song and record of the year and he also was named best new artist in February.

The singer was forced to cancel a series of shows after finding out he needed vocal cord surgery.

Sam Smith’s next live show is scheduled for July 3rd at Thetford Forest in Suffolk, the UK.
