LONDON (AP) - Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb has canceled a series of shows in Brazil after he was taken to a British hospital with abdominal pains.

A spokesman for the singer says Gibb suddenly fell ill early Sunday, and that doctors have told him not to travel while they diagnose the problem.

The 61-year-old Gibb had to cancel traveling to Brazil for concerts in cities such as Sao Paolo and Brasilia. He also had to postpone a planned meeting with Brazilian President Dilm Rouseff.

The singer underwent surgery for a blocked intestine last year, but his spokesman said Monday he has been in good health since then.

Gibb's twin brother Maurice died in 2003 at the age of 53 due to complications from a twisted intestine.
