The 57 year old will now miss the start of The Wiggles' tour, which kicks off in Florida on Sunday (03Jul11).

A statement from the band reads, "Jeff will be taking a short break from touring to have a minor heart procedure. He will be in hospital for a couple of days and hopes to rejoin The Wiggles on tour in the USA. We wish Jeff a speedy recovery and look forward to his return back on stage..."
