Three concerts by legendary French singer Charles Aznavour scheduled in New York for next week have been canceled, organizers said, shortly after the 87-year-old complained of fatigue.
"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 cancellation was given, and in Paris his press office insisted that he "is doing well and will sing tonight in Los Angeles", adding that the reason for the New York cancellations would be given later.
Aznavour had been scheduled to sing in New York on April 26, 27 and 28. Earlier this month, he re-scheduled a concert planned for Quebec, Canada due to severe throat pain.
In an earlier interview with AFP, the singer complained about his health.
"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."
