Legendary soul/jazz guitar man GEORGE BENSON has cancelled his upcoming Summer tour of the UK. The promoters posted the following message: “On the advice of George Benson’s medical team, we must cancel his upcoming UK tour. Unfortunately, it’s now the end of a lifetime of bringing his unique music and exciting performances internationally. With a heavy heart and much consideration, George has accepted that the strain of long distance travel is too difficult to endure at this point in his life. We are all terribly sorry to disappoint all his fans, especially those holding tickets in the UK.”
Other news sites mention health and age issues more specifically while back in autumn George tweeted that he was “feeling sick… constantly tired and fatigued”.
