French singer Charles Aznavour cancels 3 concerts in New York

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2012-04-22

Legendary French singer Charles Aznavour has cancelled three concerts in New York, event organisers said Saturday. Earlier this month the singer rescheduled a concert in Canada due to severe throat pain.

AFP - Three concerts by legendary French singer Charles Aznavour scheduled here for next week have been canceled, organizers said late Saturday.

"The concerts have been canceled and will not be re-scheduled," Renee Portoff, a representative of the entertainment company Live Nation, told AFP.

No reason for the cancelation was given.

Aznavour had been scheduled to sing in New York on April 26, 27 and 28.

Earlier this month, he already re-scheduled a concert planned for Quebec, Canada due to severe throat pain.

In an earlier interview with AFP, the singer openly complained about his physical condition.

"Physically, I'm not the man I was," Aznavour said. "I have fatigue that I did not used to get. I moved around, often I danced on stage, I cannot do it any more."

During his career, Aznavour has written nearly 1,000 songs. He recently completed a musical and still claims to be working "a lot."
