George Jones cancels Minn. concert due to health

October 31st, 2012 in News

MAHNOMEN, Minn. (AP) - A Minnesota casino says legendary country singer George Jones is ill and has canceled a concert scheduled this week.

Jones was scheduled to perform Friday at Shooting Star Casino, Hotel and Event Center in Mahnomen (muh-NOH'-min). That concert had been rescheduled from April when Jones needed more time to recover from an upper respiratory infection.

Shooting Star released a statement from Jones' management team, saying the 81-year-old singer has gotten a virus and is being treated by doctors.

Jones apologized to his fans for the inconvenience.

Shooting Star says there are no plans to reschedule the performance. Ticket-buyers will receive a refund in seven to 10 days.
