Eddie Murphy doesn't sing at least not tonight

August 28, 1993|By J.D. Considine

The Eddie Murphy concert slated for Hammerjacks this evening has been canceled due to throat problems, it was announced late yesterday.

According to Terrie Williams, Murphy's publicist, the comedian and singer had been feeling strained for much of the two-week tour with his band, Psychedelic Psoul. "There's been a lot on him," she said.

Moreover, with filming scheduled to begin next week on "Beverly Hills Cop 3," Murphy apparently felt it would be unwise to risk damaging his voice by playing in Baltimore, the final date of the tour. A performance last night in Delaware went on as scheduled.

Williams said Murphy plans to resume singing once work on "Beverly Hills Cop 3" is finished, sometime in December. "He's definitely going to be back," she said.

There's no word on when the Hammerjacks show would be rescheduled, however. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.
