The singer has been advised not to travel or perform due to a mild flu virus.

Legendary singer Tony Bennett has canceled a concert in Pennsylvania due to what his publicist calls a mild flu virus.

Bennett was scheduled to perform at Sands Bethlehem Event Center on Saturday night. The venue announced Friday the show was postponed.

The announcement said the 90-year-old Bennett has been advised not to travel or perform for "the next few days." It stated the Grammy winner sends his regrets and all tickets will be honored for a new date.

Publicist Sylvia Weiner said there isn't a rescheduled date yet but Bennett "looks forward to continuing his performance schedule very soon."

His iconic 65-year career includes the albums I Left My Heart in San Francisco and recent collaborations with Lady Gaga.

Bennett won a Grammy for best traditional pop vocal album last year.
