The multiple Grammy Award-winner says she pushed herself too hard Tuesday night at Talking Stick Resort Arena in downtown Phoenix.

Adele says in a somewhat raspy voice on her website that fans hearing it know Wednesday's show "wouldn't be very good."

She adds: "I'm really, really sorry. I've had a cold for a couple of days and I've been pushing through it."

Adele's next scheduled world tour shows are Saturday and Sunday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
