George Michael has pulled out of a Wednesday night (26Oct11) concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London after falling ill with a viral infection.
The Careless Whisper singer kicked off his Symphonica tour with a homecoming gig in London, England on Tuesday (25Oct11) but he has axed a second show in order to recover.
A post on the venue's website reads, "With great regret, George Michael has been forced to postpone his concert tonight at the Royal Albert Hall, London.
"A Doctor visited George this afternoon and confirmed he is suffering from a viral infection and has a high temperature, and on medical advice he has been advised that he cannot perform tonight to allow him time to recover before his next concert at the Royal Albert Hall on Friday 28th October."
The star hinted about a looming health crisis in a tweet on Monday (24Oct11), writing, "not speaking to anyone till tomorrow, resting my voice for the Albert Hall wanna be perfect for my fellow Londoners."
