Country star George Jones has cancelled two upcoming shows after he was admitted to hospital in Tennessee on Thursday.
The Door hitmaker, 81, checked into a Nashville medical facility for observation after he was diagnosed with a fever and irregular blood pressure during a routine check-up, according to his publicist.
Jones has cancelled a concert in Atlanta, Georgia on Friday as well as a show in Salem, Virginia on Saturday. Both gigs are expected to be rescheduled.
The singer has battled ongoing respiratory problems over the past few years, and last November, he cancelled a concert in Minnesota after falling ill with a virus.
The country singer is currently on his farewell tour and plans to perform his final concert on 22 November at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
