George Michael Cancels Tour in Australia

The British singer George Michael’s six-concert tour of Australia that was due to start in Perth on Nov. 10 and finish in the NSW Hunter Valley on Dec. 1 has been cancelled because of lingering health problems, it was announced. The BBC reported that he suffered from life-threatening pneumonia and spent a whole month in a Vienna hospital last winter.

“They recommended complete rest and the type of post-traumatic counseling which is available in cases like mine but I’m afraid I believed (wrongly) that making music and getting out there to perform for the audiences that bring me such joy would be therapy enough in itself,” he said.

He has already performed numerous dates across Europe over the last month and added that despite enjoying his recent performances, “Unfortunately, I seriously underestimated how difficult this year would be.” The nine cancelled concerts were due to take place in Perth, Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and the Hunter Valley.
