Bryan Ferry has been admitted to hospital after the Roxy Music singer was reported to have fallen "seriously ill". The 65-year-old was forced to cancel an appearance at an Olympic 2012 event on April 5 after complaining of suffering ill-health for some time. He is now understood to be undergoing hospital tests.
The Daily Mail reports that a spokesperson for Ferry denied that the singer had suffered a heart attack but confirmed that he was having a medical examination.
The spokesman said, "Bryan has been feeling rough for some time and he felt even worse today. So, he thought it was best for the doctors to look into it. We're all obviously very concerned for him."
The spokesman then added that the tests had been taken as a "precautionary measure".
Ferry had recently completed a lengthy world tour with Roxy Music which finished in New Zealand. Ferry is reported to have stopped off in India en route back to Britain to judge an exclusive style and car show before preparing to start a four-month European tour in Tel Aviv on April 19.
It was recently announced that Ferry had been scheduled to appear at Thetford Forest and the Hop Farm Festival this July but there has been no comment as to whether these dates have been affected or not.
