Tom Jones Illness Cancels Concerts
If you were hoping to see Sir Tom Jones in concert this weekend, you’re out of luck. The “What’s New Pussycat” singer had to cancel his Singapore concerts due to illness. But what type?
“Acute laryngitis,” declared Jones’ Web site. Physicians are “unable to guarantee that Sir Tom would be able to perform the full show tonight at 100 percent vocal strength,” said the site, despite efforts to rest his voice and the rescheduling of his concert until Thursday.
The vocal problems are serious enough that concerts on Friday and Saturday at the Olympic Fencing Stadium in Seoul have also been cancelled. “In addition, they have warned that by performing, Sir Tom could risk serious permanent damage to his vocals,” said the site.
But there is some hope. Future performances in Oman’s Muscat, South Africa’s Johannesburg and Cape Town, and the United Arab Emirates’ Abu Dhabi are set for April and are expected to go forward as scheduled. [Popeater]
Now, if you can’t make it to see Sir Tom Jones in concert, you can always buy his latest album 24 Hours.
