Chicago - Blues guitarist BB King has cancelled the remaining eight performances of his current tour after being diagnosed with dehydration and exhaustion.

King's official website says he fell ill on Friday evening during a performance at the House of Blues in Chicago and was evaluated by a doctor.

The end of his tour was to include stops next week at his own BB King Blues Club and Grill in New York.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is 89 and has released over 50 albums.

No further updates on his condition were provided.
