He might be able to stop an alien invasion (a la 1996’s ingenius Mars Attacks!), but when it comes to bronchitis, even the likes of Tom Jones falls victim. Yes, the world’s best showman is being forced to cancel a few of his upcoming dates. In a press statement via his official site, Jones contracted the irritable disease and because he championed on, he’s threatened the performance of his vocals. Does the term “bad ass” fit into all of that? You’re goddamn right it does.

The statement goes on to add:

“His specialist doctors have now ordered complete vocal rest for a prescribed period of time.

“There are no underlying health problems and Sir Tom is looking forward to a full recovery very soon. He is deeply sorry for any inconvenience caused and very much regrets disappointing his fans. An announcement will be made soon regarding the rescheduling of the dates.”

Worried about not seeing him? Well, take a “gander” at the dates below, if those were the dates you were attending, stay tuned…they’re likely to be postponed for another time. Though when is another mystery altogether, as Jones is booked until the end of the year, with a residency in Vegas next month and that hot appearance in San Francisco at the end of the summer. Ouch! Get better Tom and remember, “it’s not unusual to get sick from to time…”

Oh, ho ho ho.
