American Idol” winner Phillip Phillips has canceled the rest of his college concert tour due to illness, according to “Entertainment Tonight.”

The Season 11 winner is battling ongoing kidney issues and is “bordering on exhaustion” due to his excessive schedule.

Phillips had surgery last June to remove massive kidney stones and battled sickness during his run on the talent competition.

The singer had nine remaining dates left for the college tour, but the singer reveals he plans to be back on the road this summer — with John Mayer.

“Hey guys, due to doctor’s orders I have to postpone my last few tour dates. They will be rescheduled!” Phillips wrote to fans on his Facebook page. “Looking forward to seeing you all on the John Mayer tour this summer!”
