Tom Tour Canceled

Tom Jones canceled his Asian tour while in the middle of it.

Jones had gotten through two songs during a March 26 concert at the Resorts World Sentosa casino in Singapore when his voice broke. He left the stage and said he hoped to make up the concert in a week’s time.

But doctors advised against it, saying they were “unable to guarantee that Sir Tom would be able to perform” at full vocal strength any time soon, according to Jones’ Web site.

In addition, doctors warned that Jones could risk permanent damage to his vocal cords if he sang too soon.

Jones was also scheduled to perform at the Olympic Fencing Stadium in Seoul on April 2-3.

Those shows were canceled.
