The sex bomb did not explode last night. Classic rock/soul crooner Tom Jones announced in a statement on his website today that “due to severe dehydration,” he was forced to cancel his concert in Monaco on Saturday. The statement emphatically stressed that Jones was not suffering from any heart problems, as had been reported in the British press.
“This was extremely disappointing for Tom, the band and all connected with the tour,” the statement continued. “This was the last date of a very successful three month tour, where many of the shows were in locations that were in the throes of high summer heat.”
The Associated Press is reporting that Jones was admitted to the Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco on Saturday night, and was “doing well” on Sunday, though it’s unclear when he will be released.
