Bette responded on June 5, "I want to thank everyone who came to my defense last night during my personal Battle of the Bulge with he who must not be named.

The music legend's "Pet Sounds and Greatest Hits Live" tour was set to begin on June 7 in Massachusetts. "As you may know in the last year or so I've had 3 surgeries on my back. The surgeries were successful and i'm physically stronger than i've been in a long time," he wrote on his website. "However, after my last surgery i started feeling strange and it's been pretty scary for awhile. I was not feeling like myself. Mentally insecure is how I'd describe it. We're not sure what is causing it but i do know that it's not good for me to be on the road right now." He said he plans to make up the missed dates. "I've been struggling with stuff in my head and saying things I don't mean and I don't know why. Its something i've never dealt with before and we cant quite figure it out just yet," he added. "I'm going to rest, recover and work with my doctors on this."
