Singer and Fleetwood Mac co-founder John McVie has fallen ill to cancer. He's taking time out for medical treatment, and so the band has reluctantly canceled their tour dates of New Zealand and Australia.
Singer and Fleetwood Mac co-founder John McVie has fallen ill to cancer.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "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. 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 band's Web site announced.
"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."
The 67-year-old McVie founded the group in 1967 with Mick Fleetwood. The band just completed a series of shows in Europe and the United States and was set to move on to the next leg of their tour beginning with a November 10 show in Sydney.
The British-American rock group has enjoyed a long and storied career, full of marital conflicts between wives Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks and breakups and lineups. The band is perhaps best known for their chart-topping album "Rumors," and such songs as "Tusk" and "Don't Stop."
Many music fans posted their condolences on the band's Facebook page. "So sorry to hear," fan Terry Byrne posted. "God Bless him and his family. Sending out lifting prayers for healing and quick recovery. We love you John. Thank you for all of your time and music and for being so generous... the quiet one in Fleetwood Mac, but the foundation."
Details of McVie's illness have not been released.
