HONOLULU (AP) _ Don Ho has been released from the hospital, three days after he was admitted with shortness of breath, his spokeswoman said.

Ho, 75, is being treated for an abnormal heart rhythm, said spokeswoman Donna Jung. He entered an undisclosed hospital Friday and was released Monday.

She said Ho will return to work at a date to be determined.

The Hawaiian crooner, who has been entertaining fans for 40 years, will reschedule shows at the Waikiki Beachcomber Hotel, Jung said. Dates for a mainland concert tour next month will be postponed.
