Robin Williams was admitted to a Florida hospital yesterday after complaining of shortness of breath. After first postponing his remaining Sunshine State dates, tour organizers announced this afternoon that the remainder of his 80-date "Weapons of Self-Destruction" tour will also be postponed while Williams undergoes emergency heart surgery for an aortic valve replacement.

Officials at Durham Performing Arts Center said his show, scheduled for Friday, March 13, will be rescheduled for the fall, and that tickets to the sold-out show will be honored. Text of announcement after the jump.


MARCH 5, 2009 DURHAM, NC - Robin Williams is postponing the remainder of his critically acclaimed one man show, "Weapons of Self-Destruction," to undergo surgery for an aortic valve replacement. The tour is expected to resume in the fall.

Previously purchased tickets will be honored once the new dates are scheduled so ticketholders are encouraged to hold their tickets for this sell out DPAC performance. For more information on show details contact the DPAC box office at 919-680-2787.

"I'm so touched by everyone's support and well wishes," said Williams. "This tour has been amazing fun and I can't wait to get back out on the road after a little tune-up."

Williams has been on the sold-out 80-city "Weapons of Self-Destruction" comedy tour since September 2008.
