Pop superstar George Michael is said to be responding well to treatment for pneumonia at a private clinic in Vienna, Austria.

The 48-year-old former Wham! frontman has cancelled a string of European concert dates of his Symphonica world tour after falling ill, including a concert last night in Strasbourg, France as well as two scheduled dates in Cardiff, Wales.

A public statement from Michael's spokesperson reads, "Singer George Michael has been forced, to postpone the Cardiff dates (26th and Sunday 27th of November) of his Symphonica tour due to illness. [Michael] recently postponed tour dates in Vienna and Strasbourg under doctor’ s orders after being diagnosed with pneumonia and he is currently receiving treatment." The statement goes on to say that the singer plans to reschedule the appearances at a later date.

Friends and aides of the singer have dismissed reports appearing in Austrian media that the star is suffering from a heart condition. The tour has been receiving nearly unanimous critical acclaim, with many critics saying this is perhaps Michael's best concert tour yet.
