Fleetwood Mac is canceling upcoming tour dates in Australia and New Zealand because bassist and founding member John McVie will be receiving treatment for cancer, the band announced Sunday.
Fleetwood Mac has canceled their upcoming shows on their current world tour upon the news the band's co-founder, John McVie, has been diagnosed with cancer. The group just completed the European leg of the tour and were scheduled to perform 14 shows in Australia and New Zealand through the end of the year. An announcement on the band's Facebook page did not go into specific detail about McVie's cancer but made note the 67-year-old would be receiving treatment during that time. McVie, along with original members, Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood and Stevie Nicks first returned to touring last April after a three year hiatus.
The members of Fleetwood Mac announced this weekend that the band will be canceling all of their upcoming tour dates in Australia and New Zealand, scheduled for November and December.
