George Michael cancels shows for anxiety treatment

George Michael is canceling Australian shows so he can get treatment for major anxiety that he has suffered since a serious health scare last year.

The singer said on his website that he had hoped making music and performing would be enough to work through the anxiety, but he underestimated how hard his recovery would be.

The 49-year-old former Wham frontman was to perform in Sydney and other Australian cities in November and early December.

He still has concerts scheduled for this month in the United Kingdom. They are makeup dates for shows he canceled after being hospitalized for pneumonia in Vienna, Austria, in November.

Mr. Michael spent about three weeks in the hospital and said later that his health had been “touch and go.”

He performed at the London Olympics closing ceremony in August.
