A week after announcing the postponement of 14 imminent concert dates, Ray Charles has decided to cancel his remaining tour appearances for the year, citing acute hip discomfort.

The famed singer, 72, said it broke his heart to make the announcement.

"But the doctors insist I stay put and mend for a while, so I'll heed their advice," he said. Charles has been receiving treatment in Los Angeles.

The canceled concerts include an Aug. 22 appearance in Escondido, Aug. 23 in Las Vegas, Aug. 24 in San Diego and Aug. 31 in Long Beach.
