British singer-songwriter Adele is ready to tour again, beginning with a concert in Vancouver Aug. 9.

The Rolling in the Deep singer had to cancel a North American tour earlier in June  because of laryngitis.

Columbia Records issued a statement Thursday saying Adele can sing again after resting her voice.

The Grammy-winner has rescheduled all her North American dates and added some shows. Vancouver is the only Canadian stop.

Pioneering rockabilly singer Wanda Jackson, who had been slated to open most of Adele's tour, will appear on the bill for her August dates.

Adele's soulful album 21 is the biggest-selling album of 2011 so far, unsurpassed by Lady Gaga's Born This Way, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
