Ailing Tom Jones Drops Singaporean and Korean Gigs

April 2, 2010 (4:36 am) GMT
The 69-year-old legendary singer is forced to cancel his shows in Singapore and Korea on April 1 and 3 respectively since his performances 'could risk serious permanent damage to his vocals.'

Legendary singer has scrapped more shows in the Far East after failing to fight off a serious bout of acute laryngitis. The "Delilah" star scrapped two shows in Singapore and the Philippines at the weekend, March 27 and 28, after he was forced to walk off the stage on Friday night, March 26 after just two songs.

Doctors ordered him to rest his voice completely, and his rep insisted the star would reschedule the shows for the following week. But Jones has now canceled a concert in Singapore on Thursday, April 1, as well as Saturday's, April 3 gig in Korea.

A statement on his website says, "Sir Tom could risk serious permanent damage to his vocals (if he performed). We are deeply sorry for disappointing and inconveniencing the fans." The statement advises fans to get a refund from the point of purchase.
