George Michael in hospital with pneumonia
George Michael has been taken to hospital with pneumonia, his publicist said on Wednesday night.
Michael was said to be receiving treatment in Vienna where he was due to perform as part of his Symphonica tour on Monday. The show was cancelled two hours before it was expected to start.
The 48-year-old has also been forced to postpone dates in Strasbourg and Cardiff, where he was set to appear at the Motorpoint Arena this weekend.
In a statement, Michael’s publicist Connie Filippello said he had been “diagnosed with pneumonia and he is currently receiving treatment”. She added new tour dates would be scheduled “when available”.
Austria’s state broadcaster said the singer was at Vienna’s AKH hospital.
Michael announced the 65-show tour of Europe in May – three years after he said he would quit live performance.
