Crooner Tom Jones was forced to cancel in Monaco on Saturday due to “severe dehydration.”
Tom’s official website released a statement explaining that the concert was not canceled because of heart problems, but that he was suffering from severe dehydration. The statement read;
“Sir Tom was ordered by doctors not to perform in Monte Carlo yesterday evening, due to severe dehydration. This was extremely disappointing for Tom, the band and all connected with the tour. This was the last date of a very successful 3 month tour, where many of the shows were in locations that were in the throes of high summer heat. There are NO heart problems, as has been reported in the press. Sir Tom wants to relay his deep regrets for causing disappointment and inconvenience to all who would have come to enjoy his show last night. He thanks everyone for their understanding and support, and hopes to see the fans in Monte Carlo again soon.”
Reports are saying that Jones was admitted into the Princess Grace Hospital on Saturday night and that he is now doing well. No word on when the singer will be released.
