The musician, who is currently on tour with his band, wrote: "Here I am three minutes after coming off stage tonight. At this point, everything (physically) hurts! This show is at the limit of our collective energies - and something I've been training for all through the last six months. It's right on the limit."

The admission comes after Brian was struck down with a virus in April. At the time he said: "I've got a horrible virus, it's not Covid because I haven't been testing positive, but it's something that's made me quite poorly, so I haven't been around much."

Fans were thrilled Brian was able to head out on tour with the band, but in his video, he admitted it's not quite as he'd hoped.

"It's been my regret on this tour that we can't do what we usually do and meet people. We can't do any of that this tour because we're taking it so seriously that we could lose shows.
