He added that despite receiving treatment from several health professionals, the pain has not improved. 

"Despite intensive physio and specialist treatment, the pain has continued to get worse," he said in a statement. 

As a result, the singer says he has been experiencing "difficulties moving" and will be undergoing an operation. 

He comforted his fans and assured them that it will be worth the wait. 

"It breaks my heart to keep you waiting any longer. I completely feel your frustrations after the year we've had. I promise you this - the shows will return to the road next year and I will make sure they are more than worth the wait," he wrote.
