Music legend Sir Tom Jones has cancelled his Abu Dhabi concert due to a “serious illness” in his immediate family. The iconic singer was due to perform at the du Forum arena on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, on Friday April 15.
Jones’ management issued a statement saying, ‘‘Due to serious illness in his immediate family, Tom Jones regretfully has to cancel his performance at the du Forum. He extends his deepest apologies to both the fans and organisers, who he is most sad to disappoint”.
Event promoter Flash added that all tickets purchased through Ticketmaster will be automatically refunded to customers within ten working days. Refunds for tickets purchased through Virgin Megastores are to be requested at the point of purchase.
While his management have made no further comment, the Welsh crooner has previously detailed his wife’s battle with her health in his autobiography. His wife, Linda, has had two cancer scares in the past few years, and has reportedly also developed emphysema. His trip to Abu Dhabi was part of a world tour that marked performances in Manila, Philippines, which have also been cancelled.
