Fleetwood Mac announced on their Facebook page earlier today that they would be canceling their upcoming 14-date tour of Australia and New Zealand due to bassist John McVie’s battle with an unspecified form of cancer.

The band posted their following statement on their page:

“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.

“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.”

All the best to John, with positivity and best wishes as you begin this battle.
