Just got this message. Tony Bennett did cancel his show with Lady Gaga tonight. But I’m told he’s ok, it’s just a touch of flu. Cut him some slack– he’s 88. He’ll be back, bopping away!
British press said he collapsed at his soundcheck today. I am assured Tony had NO soundcheck today for his second of two shows at Royal Albert Hall.
Tony Bennett is known for never canceling a show, so it was a rare occurrence that, due to a flu virus, he was not able to perform the second of two sold-out shows with Lady Gaga at the Royal Albert Hall in London this evening.
He sent this message to his fans on Twitter:
“Sorry to not be singing in London tonight. I love my fans in the UK and appreciate all the well wishes to get over this flu quickly.”
Hey everybody! Don't worry about Tony, he's ok! That's just showbiz sometimes. We'll catch u next time, we got you! ❤️
