Phillip Phillips - Illness Forces Philip Phillip Phillips To Scrap Tour Dates

Singer/songwriter Phillip Phillips has been forced to postpone the remainder of his current tour due to health problems.

The reigning American Idol champion has been touring colleges around the U.S., but he announced on Monday (06May13) that he will have to scrap the rest of his live dates, and a scheduled stop in Dublin, Ireland.

Phillips took to his page to announce the news, writing, "Hey guys, due to doctor's orders I have to postpone my last few tour dates. They will be rescheduled!"

The 21 year old has had ongoing health issues that led to him requiring surgery to remove kidney stones last year (12), just weeks before he embarked on a tour with his fellow American Idol contestants.

There is no word yet on whether the Home singer will be able to honour his plans to perform on the Idol season 12 finale next Thursday (16May13), but he has assured fans that his dates with John Mayer this summer (13) will not be upset by his latest health problems.
