Georgia native and former American Idol winner Phillip Phillips is postponing his remaining shows on his current tour due to medical reasons.

Phillips, who is from Leesburg, posted on his Facebook page that, due to doctor's orders, he has to forego the remaining dates on his tour.

"Hey guys, due to doctor's orders I have to postpone my last few tour dates. They will be rescheduled! Looking forward to seeing you all on on the John Mayer tour this summer!," Phillips posted.

According to his website, Phillips' tour was to end May 17 in Newark, OH. In total, the announcement Monday will impact eight shows.

Phillips had to overcome one medical issue — kidney stones — during his stint on "American Idol" to eventually claim his prize as last season's winner.

The "Home" star reportedly has had to take some time off to deal with exhaustion and dehydration, although he has hasn't stated publicly what the ailment is that caused the interruption in the concert tour.
