Days before kicking off his U.S. tour, singer Sam Smith told fans that his throat is “looking bloody fantastic."

Smith underwent surgery in May to treat a hemorrhage on his vocal cords. The “Stay With Me” singer was forced to cancel all tour dates through June.

“I have been in Boston the last few days to have a check up on my throat, before I embark on my American tour,” Smith wrote on Instagram on Wednesday. “MY THROAT IS LOOKING BLOODY FANTASTIC. So it’s amazing news. So happy. It’s going to be a really tough month of shows but I can’t wait to see you all, and pray it’s going to be a smooth ride. LET’S GO.”

Smith is slated to return to the stage on Friday at the Forecastle Festival in Louisville, Kentucky.

Last month, Smith told fans that he “cannot wait to return to performing live.”

“Thank you all for waiting for me,” he wrote on Twitter on June 9. He also posted a video showing him speaking aloud publicly for the first time since his operation.
