George Michael in Intensive Care, Cancels Tour

George Michael in Intensive Care, Cancels Tour


George Michael has been hospitalized with a severe form of pneumonia and has been forced to cancel the remaining dates of his concert tour, reports Daily Mail.

Professor Dr Christoph Zielinski of the Medical University of Vienna, and Professor Dr Thomas Staudinger, specialist in internal medicine and intensive care medicine, said in a joint statement: "George Michael has severe community acquired pneumonia and is being treated as an inpatient. His condition has stabilized and he is responding to treatment. From the current point of view, the time until recovery cannot be estimated, but he will not be able to perform the rest of the tour. Besides medical treatment, complete rest and peace and quiet are mandatory."

Michael's publicist released a statement yesterday that read: "He is receiving excellent medical care; he is responding to treatment and slowly improving. To ensure his complete well-being, George Michael's doctors have advised that he cannot perform the rest of his Symphonica tour and that he instead takes a full and complete rest. As a result, all of the British dates of the Symphonica European tour will be postponed."
