LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Singer Sam Smith, who is scheduled to take the stage at the Forecastle Festival this summer, is canceling more concert dates as he deals with vocal cord issues.

Smith says he's canceling upcoming concerts in Japan and the Philippines.

He says he's flying to the U.S. to seek treatment for his vocal exhaustion.

The 22-year-old was forced to cancel his Australian tour last week due to a small hemorrhage on his vocal cords.

Smith is set to hit the stage at Forecastle on Friday, July 17.

No word on if that concert will be affected.
