Tom Jones was released from the hospital on Tuesday, August 30 after being hospitalized on August 27 for "severe dehydration."

"Sir Tom was released from hospital yesterday and is now in very good health," a statement posted on his website on August 31 read. "A very big Thank You to all for your concern, your messages and wishes have been very thoughtful."

Jones was admitted to the Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco on August 27 and was forced to cancel a concert in Monaco, which was supposed to be the last stop on his tour. A previous statement on his website denied rumors that the singer was suffering from heart problems.

"Sir Tom was ordered by doctors not to perform in Monte Carlo yesterday evening, due to severe dehydration," the statement released on August 27 said. "This was the last date of a very successful 3 month tour, where many of the shows were in locations that were in the throes of high summer heat."

"Sir Tom wants to relay his deep regrets for causing disappointment and inconvenience to all who would have come to enjoy his show last night," the statement continued. "He thanks everyone for their understanding and support, and hopes to see the fans in Monte Carlo again soon."

Jones, 71, was born in Whales and is known for hits like "It's Not Unusual," "What's New Pussycat" and "Sex Bomb." He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2006.

His show in Monaco was to have been the finale of his three-month "Praise & Blame" tour.

The singer reportedly plans a short tour of central and eastern Europe beginning in November.
