MAHNOMEN, MN (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. 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 canceled his concert at Arlington Music Hall that was set for Friday, April 27th.

“I never want to cancel a show, but I have to do what the doctors tell me,” Jones said in a statement. “I thank all the fans from the bottom of my heart for their prayers and I look forward to seeing them on the road soon.”

Jones also had to cancel a series of shows in June 2012 for the same reason, a respiratory infection, and spent over a week in the hospital. He continues to rest at his Franklin, Tenn. home.

A member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, Jones is known for dozens of classic hits including “He Stopped Loving Her Today” and “White Lightning.”
