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 the 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.
