A respiratory infection has led Whitney Houston to postpone three more dates on her European tour. A statement from the singer's representative says doctors have advised Houston to reschedule concerts Thursday and Friday in Manchester, England, and her Sunday performance in Glasgow, Scotland.

The statement says "Whitney has been advised that she cannot perform to allow her time to recover."

Houston was in Paris because the European leg of her world tour was supposed to kick off there Tuesday. She postponed that date because of illness, too.

All the dates will be rescheduled.
