Due to HIPAA regulations we cannot reveal further details of his condition. He is still in the hospital for continued monitoring of his condition.”
Murphy’s household launched a press release, thanking his followers for understanding his scenario. “We would like to thank the fans for their undying support and hope that Peter will be back on stage with a refreshed heart, stronger than before,” the assertion learn.
The singer was scheduled to carry out 4 extra concert events at New York’s Le Poisson Rouge, the place he’s been doing full-album performances. The venue stated it might reschedule the dates. Ticket holders might both maintain onto their tickets for the brand new dates or request a refund by 5 p.m. ET on August 30th by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Well being issues have prevented Murphy from performing prior to now. In 2010, Murphy backed out of a 100-date tour with Lifeless Can Dance’s Brendan Perry over undisclosed well being points. And in 2017, he postponed a San Francisco residency after struggling a difficulty together with his vocal cords.
