Tom Jones postpones tour after 'medical advice'
Sir Tom Jones has postponed a US tour “following medical advice” – prompting dozens of concerned comments from loyal fans.
The 77-year-old star was due to begin a four-week stint of concerts on 6 September, but doctors have advised him against performing.
On Twitter, the Welsh singer offered “sincere apologies to his fans”, and said more than a dozen dates are being rescheduled for May and June 2018.
Performances in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Colorado have now been cancelled, as well as gigs in Texas and California.
The statement did not give further details about his health issues.
Sir Tom has enjoyed a long career that began with It’s Not Unusual and What’s New Pussycat in the 1960s.
He went on to win over a new generation of fans with Sex Bomb in 1999, and through his appearance as a coach on The Voice, a TV talent show.
Sir Tom’s wife of 59 years, Linda, died of cancer last year.
