*Blues legend B.B. King had to cancel the remainder of his tour after being diagnosed with dehydration and exhaustion, according to his website.
The 89-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer fell ill Friday night during a performance at the House of Blues in Chicago.
The musician had eight remaining stops on his tour, including one at his own B.B. King Blues Club and Grill in New York. No additional updates on his condition have been revealed.
Hamish Anderson, whose band was opening for King, tweeted about the situation on Saturday.
Very sad to hear the news of BB King’s sickness and subsequent cancellation of the tour. The band and I wish him a safe speedy recovery!

In April, an erratic performance prompted King’s reps to issue an apology.
“The combination of the rigors of the very long drive and high blood sugar due to his medication error resulted in a performance that did not match Mr. King’s usual standard of excellence,” the statement read. King has lived with Type II diabetes for two decades.
