Veteran crooner Sir Tom Jones cancelled a concert in Monte Carlo on Saturday night (27Aug11) after he was rushed to hospital with heart problems, according to reports.
The Sex Bomb hitmaker, 71, was due to perform at prestigious venue Salle des Etoiles at the Sporting Club in front of 200 diners, but the gig was axed at the last minute following news Jones had to be taken to hospital after falling ill.
In a post on Twitter.com, theatrical producer David King writes, "Tonight's concert at the Sporting Club, Monte Carlo, cancelled as Tom Jones admitted to hospital with a heart scare."
A representative from the Sporting Club says, "I received a call at 8.10pm informing me that the event had been cancelled because Tom Jones had been taken to hospital."
Staff at Monte Carlo's Princess Grace Hospital could not confirm whether Jones had been admitted into the medical facility.
