Classical singer Russell Watson has postponed his forthcoming UK tour after undergoing brain surgery to remove a tumour last month.
Russell Watson has put recording commitments on hold
The tour, scheduled for November, has been held back until early next year following the advice of doctors.
Doctors removed the benign tumour in a five-hour operation at St George's Hospital in London.
He was re-admitted to hospital earlier this month after suffering dizziness, headaches and blurred vision.
"Forthcoming dates for his UK tour have unfortunately had to be postponed until early 2007," a spokesman said.
"The singer has been advised by specialists not to undertake the heavy schedule and to continue to rest until he has completely recovered from the surgery.
"Russell continues to have weekly check-ups and is recovering slowly, and he is looking forward to performing for his fans again very soon," he said.
Watson, 39, was recording an album in Los Angeles when the tumour was diagnosed.
He had to wait two days to find out if the tumour was malignant or not, during which he carried on recording before flying back to the UK.
Further recording has been put on hold during his recovery.
All tickets for the postponed shows will be valid for the new dates.
