Phillip Phillips has called off the last eight dates of his tour for health reasons.

Phillips writes on his Facebook page he cannot perform because of doctor's orders. He does not say why, but he's suffered kidney problems in the past.

Phillips plans to reschedule the missed dates. He still plans to tour with John Mayer beginning July 6 in Milwaukee.
