Ailing Bee Gees star Robin Gibb was forced to scrap a planned appearance at the launch of his new classical project in London on Tuesday because he was too ill.
The singer, who is battling colon cancer, had hoped to be back on his feet in time to attend at the Titanic Requiem concert, marking the 100th anniversary of the luxury liner’s ill-fated voyage, at the Royal Albert Hall.

However, the concert came days after the singer was hospitalized with pneumonia, and he wasn’t well enough to make an appearance.

His son, who co-wrote the symphonic piece, told the audience that his father was still recovering in a clinic.

Before the performance, he said, “He sends all his love. We are all praying for him and hoping he has a speedy recovery.”
