MARSEILLE, France — U.S. jazz singer Al Jarreau was discharged from hospital on Sunday after being treated for heart problems and plans to continue his European tour on Tuesday, hospital authorities in Marseille said.
Jarreau, 70, collapsed during a concert in Barcelonnette in southeast France on July 22 and was admitted to hospital with breathing difficulties.
He is due to give his next concert at Hanau, Germany, on Tuesday after three concerts were canceled last week in Germany, Austria and Slovakia.
Jarreau said on his website he expected to complete the rest of his European tour and fulfill other concert commitments in the United States, Japan and elsewhere after doctors in Marseille successfully treated him for arrhythmia, or heart palpitations.
Jarreau, winner of seven Grammy awards, is the composer of such hits as “Boogie Down” and “Roof Garden.”
