Sir Tom Jones has been forced to postpone a concert in Budapest, after he collapsed just hours before being scheduled to take to the stage.

The 82-year-old singer was treated by private doctors, who advised he postpone the concert.

Local news outlets reported that an ambulance was not called to the venue, but Jones’ private physicians attended to him backstage.

A message from the venue in the Hungarian capital translated to English said, “Unfortunately following doctors’ advice, Tom Jones regrets he is unable to perform at the MVM Dome this evening.”

“The show will be rescheduled to Tuesday 16th August 2022. All tickets will remain valid for the revised date.”

“Sir Tom sends his sincere apologies for the inconvenience created but looks forward to performing for you in August.”

There has been no further update on Jones’ condition.

Sir Tom has been jetting around the world for his much-anticipated Surrounded By Time tour and has been sharing regular snaps of his travels and shows on Instagram.

His ongoing European and US tour features more than 50 dates and the singer is due to perform in cities across Germany, Croatia, Italy, Luxembourg, Norway and Belgium over the coming weeks.
