LAS VEGAS (AP) - Mexican musical icon Juan Gabriel has postponed three California shows after being hospitalized in Las Vegas with pneumonia.
A tour publicist said in a statement Tuesday that the 64-year-old singer was rushed to intensive care Monday morning after waking up with a fever and congestion. He had performed a three-hour concert the night before at the Mandalay Bay resort on the Las Vegas Strip as part of his "Volver" tour.
Shows scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday in Los Angeles were called off, along with a Saturday concert in San Jose, Calif.
The statement says new show dates were expected to be announced later in the week by tour producers CMN Events.
Juan Gabriel is one of the best-selling Latin recording artists of all time. His tour began earlier this month.
