Tom Jones Postpones 2nd Show After Being Rushed To Hospital


Tom Jones, 78, recently postponed his second gig in a row before the performance was due. He was rushed to the hospital to get treatment on a bacterial infection. Jones was still well enough to inform his fans on social media of what was going on. He said that he is “sorry and disappointed,” but is hopeful for a speedy recovery.

The show that he canceled will be postponed to Sunday, August 12th. The first show that he had to postpone was supposed to be on July 18th, but he was reported feeling unwell at the time. Medical professionals advised Jones to not perform both nights.


“Sir Tom is in good spirits and wants to extend both his heartfelt appreciation and his sincere apologies to all who planned to attend the shows, as well as those involved in the events,” the announcement read, “He is determined to be back performing very soon.”

Fans have been told that they may receive full refunds for their tickets.


The singer had a string of UK dates following the shows he was supposed to perform. Similarly to last September, Jones canceled an entire U.S. tour due to having a hip replacement. Doctors had advised the performer to rest and cancel the string of Stateside shows.

However, shortly after those couple shows were canceled, he later announced that all remaining dates of the U.S. tour last year would be rescheduled to sometime in 2018. The announcement read, “Following medical advice, Sir Tom Jones has announced that he will, unfortunately, be postponing his US tour, which was due to commence in Bethlehem, PA on Wednesday 6th September.”
