Fleetwood Mac Cancels Tour Dates as Member John McVie Undergoes Cancer Treatment


The British/American band says that the 14 scheduled shows in Australia and New Zealand have all been scrapped so the band's founding member can undergo treatment for cancer.

Fleetwood Mac has canceled a string of tour dates after member John McVie has been diagnosed with cancer. In a statement posted on the British/American band's Facebook page, they said that their upcoming shows in Australia and New Zealand had all been canceled so McVie could undergo treatment for his illness.

"Fleetwood Mac, who has just completed the European leg of their phenomenally successful worldwide tour, has announced the cancellation of their upcoming 14 date tour of Australia and New Zealand," the band wrote. "John McVie, one of the co-founding and original members of Fleetwood Mac, is now scheduled to be in treatment for cancer during that period of time."

The announcement did not mention the details about McVie's cancer. The band then expressed their regret for canceling their shows, adding, "We are sorry to not be able to play these Australian and New Zealand dates. We hope our Australian and New Zealand fans as well as Fleetwood Mac fans everywhere will join us in wishing John and his family all the best."

Fleetwood Mac has just finished the European leg of their tour. During the tour, the band was briefly rejoined by former keyboardist and former wife of John McVie, Christine McVie.

Earlier this year, the band which was formed in 1967 in London released an EP called "Extended Play". The four-song release marks their first new music since 2003's "Say You Will".
