Tom Jones Denies Claims About Collapsing On Stage And Updates His Health Status


Sir Tom Jones recently shared a statement on his official Twitter account in which he dismissed claims about collapsing and revealed a specialist advised him to cancel his show.

The 82-year-old singer has been currently continuing his European tour that kicked off last month in Ireland. The legendary artist will be touring in Europe until mid-August and then will move on to complete the North American leg of his performances. While his shows were going well, an unfortunate incident led the singer to cancel his concert in Budapest.

It was rumored that Tom Jones canceled his gig at the last minute after collapsing suddenly minutes before his show. Some sources reported that the medical team rushed to the stadium to treat him and decided he wasn’t well enough to take the stage. However, the singer denied claims about collapsing in his recent Twitter post and gave an update on his current health status.

Jones explained that he suffered from pain in his throat when he arrived in Budapest for the concert. Then, he was diagnosed with viral laryngitis by a specialist who came to visit him. Due to the illness, the doctor advised him to cancel the gig, gave him medicine, and told him to rest his voice.

The signer made it clear that he didn’t collapse anywhere at any time, unlike as reported by some sources. He said he looks forward to getting better and being on the stage again soon. Jones also announced that the Budapest show would take place on August 16.

Tom Jones’ Twitter post read:

“Hello to all concerned: I traveled last night from the UK to Budapest and woke this morning with an uncomfortable throat. A specialist came to visit and diagnosed ‘viral laryngitis.’ He strongly advised postponing the show and prescribed medication and vocal rest.

I did not ‘collapse’ anywhere at any time. That is pure rumor. Hopefully, the inflammation will calm soon, and I am looking forward to continuing my wonderful summer tour. Unfortunately, the show had to be canceled at the last minute, and for that, I am very sorry. However, the show in Budapest has been rescheduled and will take place on August 16. Thanks again for all your kind concern.”
