Olly Murs rushed to hospital for surgery as the star cancels summer shows in Scotland

Olly Murs has canceled his upcoming tour after being rushed to hospital for emergency surgery.

The Troublemaker singer was due to play at Edinburgh Castle as well as taking the show to Inverness this summer.

Forced to pull the plug on all 21 upcoming events, the showman will instead spend the summer months concentrating on rehabilitation after an op on his knee.

Olly took to social media to share the news as he apologized to all with tickets for the gigs, reports The Mirror.

In a heartfelt post he explained the situation and promised to be back on stage as soon as his health permits.

He told fans: “Been trying my best to avoid having it done but the op was needed and it went well.

“I’m recovering in hospital but it means I’m having to cancel all my summer shows this year whilst I focus on my rehab.

“Refunds will all be available from your point of purchase and please keep an eye out for any emails from your ticketing agent over the next few days.

“I’m so bloody sorry but my focus now is on recovering and I’ll keep you all updated on how I’m getting on! Stay cheeky catch you soon.”

Fans flocked to the comment section to wish him a speedy recovery.

“Speedy Recovery Olly,” one user said while Chunkz posted: “Get well soon ma brother, health comes first!”

James Bay added: “Get rested lad, all the best!”

“Ahh man I feel your pain, you must be gutted! Was looking forward to you hitting up wales. But atleast when you are back on the road it’ll be with a top class knee, not that dodgy old one. enjoy looking like stone cold Steve Austin, rest up buddy, let me know when you want to jump on fortnite lol,” another concerned user said.

His emergency surgery comes half a year after he had an accident on stage which had a fragment of bone lodging itself in the back of his knee.

At the time, he took to his Instagram to explain the situation to fans.

“Basically, after my second song, a fragment of bone that was in my knee managed – after I jumped – to lodge itself on the back of my knee, which basically shut my leg down,” he said from the hospital.

“During the gig I was just limping the whole time, I couldn’t believe it. So, basically I’m in, I’ve had the surgery.”

He went on to say that he had wanted to get the surgery done because he had a gig to perform at.

“It will be a different gig, I probably won’t be running around like I normally do,” he said. “There might be a stool for me to sit down on but I can’t cancel these gigs.”

Olly continued: “It’s been a mad 72 hours because I thought the worst, I thought that I might have done my knee again. I thought I ruptured my ACL, to be honest.”

He went on to apologize for “looking like a bag of s***” but said that he just wanted to send a message to let everyone know what was going on.
