It's not unusual to cancel a concert

Singer Tom Jones canceled the Monday concert at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts and the remainder of his July tour, due to vocal chord stress related to the residual effects of severe viral bronchitis, Bethel Woods announced this morning.

Jones "contracted viral bronchitis whilst on tour. He continued to perform with the infection, which has affected the function of his voice," Bethel Woods said on its Web site. "His specialist doctors have now ordered complete vocal rest for a prescribed period of time."

Tickets purchased online or by phone will be refunded automatically. Ticket holders who purchased through a Ticketmaster retail location or the Bethel Woods Box Office must request refund by returning the ticket to the point of purchase in person.

I can't imagine how fans are feeling.

Ok. I can.
