A spokesman for Roxy Music frontman Bryan Ferry has played down reports the singer was "seriously ill" in hospital on Tuesday night (05Apr11), insisting the star was released after undergoing "routine" observation and tests.
The Love Is The Drug hitmaker was taken to a medical facility on Tuesday and had to axe his planned performance at an Olympics 2012 event in London after feeling unwell.
The drama sparked reports the singer was "seriously ill" and there was even speculation he had suffered a heart attack - but his representative has now issued a statement to confirm Ferry is well and will be heading out on tour as planned later this month (Apr11).
His spokesman tells WENN, "Bryan Ferry has left hospital following a 24-hour period of routine observation and tests. All is well and he will be touring his Olympia solo album commencing this month."
