George Michael Suffering From Pneumonia
The Wham! star is in hospital after cancelling a string of gigs...
Legendary singer George Michael has been hospitalised in Austria with pneumonia.
According to The Sun, the formerWham! star had been struggling with a chest infection for weeks, with doctors in Vienna diagnosing the 48-year old with the respiratory condition.
Michael - who had previously scrapped a show in the city on Monday - has been ordered to stay in hospital, meaning he has been forced to postpone three more gigs, including two in Cardiff on Saturday and Sunday.
His gig promoter, Manfred Leodolter, told Austrian reporters: "George Michael is still in Vienna. Doctors have warned him for the moment against flying and he is getting rest in Vienna."
A spokesperson for the Faith singer has since confirmed he is receiving treatment for pneumonia, adding that his cancelled concerts will be rescheduled and the new dates "will be provided when available."
Last month, George also missed a date of his UK Symphonica orchestral tour after reports that he was suffering from a viral infection.
