Due to an unexpected illness, Sir Tom Jones recently postponed his performance in Budapest. Many stories at the time said that Tom had passed out just before the event, but Jones has since said that the reports were untrue and that it was due to a throat issue.
Tom confirmed the diagnosis by saying: “Hello to all concerned: I travelled last night from the UK to Budapest and woke this morning with an uncomfortable throat. A specialist came to visit and diagnosed ‘viral laryngitis’. He strongly advised postponing this evening’s show and prescribed medication and vocal rest.”
“I did NOT ‘collapse’ anywhere at any time, that is pure rumour. Hopefully the inflammation will calm soon as I am looking forward to continuing my wonderful summer tour. Unfortunately the show had to be cancelled at the last minute, and for that I am very sorry.”
