    No more tour dates for George Michael in 2011…at all. The singer canceled the rest of his remaining 2011 tour dates in order to recover from a bout with pneumonia.

    Michael was hospitalized in Austria on Wednesday and doctor's diagnosed him with pneumonia at that time. He immediately canceled a batch of dates through the week as a result, and now, he's axed all remaining scheduled dates. Pneumonia is no joke, so we can't blame the singer, 48, for postponing his tour dates.

    Michael's spokesperson told Britain's Sky News that "All U.K. dates have been postponed. He has pneumonia. Any other speculation about his illness is unfounded and untrue. He is receiving excellent medical care and is responding to treatment and is slowly recovering."

    We wish George Michael a speedy + complete recovery.
