The news comes just months after the 82-year-old concerned fans when rumours spread that he had collapsed prior to a performance in Budapest.
Jones’ July concert was part of his Surrounded by Time tour, which celebrates his 41st studio album of the same name, released in April 2021.
Jones was quick to shut down reports of his “collapse”, revealing to fans that he had simply been sick with a viral infection.

“A specialist came to visit and diagnosed ‘viral laryngitis’,” he explained to fans at the time. “He strongly advised postponing this evening’s show and prescribed medication and vocal rest.
“I did NOT ‘collapse’ anywhere at any time, that is pure rumour,” he said.
Jones’ latest tour spanned over 50 dates worldwide and saw him travel to cities across Germany, Croatia, Italy, Luxembourg, Norway and the UK. By October, Jones concluded his tour, travelling all the way to the United States.
