UK singer Sam Smith has appeared to confirm he will make his planned Australian gig and the Asian leg of his tour.
On Friday, Sam, 26, suffered a ‘vocal emergency,’ pulling out of the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas on minutes before he was due on stage.
The sudden move prompted speculation he may cancel more dates, however, the singer took to Instagram at the weekend in order to confirm he would still tour.

‘Everything is luckily ok but I need to rest it this week in preparation for the start of Asia tour. I’m sorry everyone,’ he said.
At this year’s Melbourne Cup Day on November 6, Sam is billed as one of the main attractions and has a six-date Australian tour scheduled throughout the month too.
On Friday, Sam opted not to be too specific about his health issues, with the hit-maker citing ‘unforeseen circumstances’ for pulling out.
‘The nature of the emergency was that Smith inexplicably lost his voice,’ Variety reported on Saturday while crediting ‘multiple sources’ for their ’emergency’ claim
‘Dear all, Due to unforeseen circumstances which transpired after rehearsal, it became clear that I’m sadly unable to perform at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Vegas tonight,’ he tweeted.
‘The nature of the emergency was that Smith inexplicably lost his voice,’ Variety reported on Saturday while crediting ‘multiple sources’ for their ’emergency’ claim.

Suggesting this could be vocal related, the site then stated it was ‘worth noting’ that ‘Boston is where Massachusetts General Hospital’s Dr Steven Zeitels, an expert in the field of vocal cord and node damage, is based out of.’
The site then added: ‘He has performed surgery on the likes of Adele, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Julie Andrews.’
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Sam Smith’s rep for comment.
