Olly Murs had to cancel all of his summer performances as he focused on his rehabilitation following surgery
Olly Murs was rushed to the hospital for emergency knee surgery.
The Troublemaker singer was devastated when he was forced to cancel his tour.
He told fans on social media: “I did my best to avoid having to get work done but it was necessary and it went well.
“I’m recovering in the hospital but that means I have to cancel all of my shows this summer while focusing on my detox.
“All returns will be available at your point of purchase, and please monitor any emails from your ticketing agent over the next few days.
“I’m sorry, but my focus right now is on recovery and I’ll keep you guys updated on how I’m doing! Be patient with you soon.”
The caption was posted with a photo of him smiling for the camera from his ward.
One photo shows him on crutches as he stands by his hospital bed.
Fans flocked to the comments section to wish him a speedy recovery.
“Speedy Recovery Olly,” said one user, while Chunkz posted: “Get well soon guys, health comes first!”
James Bay added: “Rest lad, all the best!”
“Ahh man, I feel your pain, your heart is racing! I’m looking forward to you hitting wales. But at least when you’re back on the road, it’ll be with a first class knee, not the old one. I love looking like that cool Steve Austin, rest assured bro, let me know when you want to jump into fortnite lol,” another worried user said.
His emergency surgery comes half a year after he had an accident on stage with a piece of bone lodged in the back of his knee.
At the time, he took to his Instagram to explain the situation to fans.

“Basically, after my second song, a piece of bone in my knee managed to – after I danced – lay on the back of my knee, which essentially caused my leg to bend. down,” he said from the hospital.
“During the show, I was limping the whole thing, I couldn’t believe it. So I basically got in, I got the surgery.”
He went on to say that he wanted to do the surgery because he had a gig to perform.
“It’s going to be another show, I might not be running around like I normally do,” he said. “There might be a chair for me to sit down on but I can’t cancel these gigs.”
Olly continued: “It was a crazy 72 hours because I thought the worst, I thought I might have redone my knee. Honestly, I thought I’d ruptured the ACL.”
He went on to apologize for “looking like a s*** bag” but said he just wanted to send a message to let people know what’s going on.
