Sad news, as FLEETWOOD MAC co-founder/bassist JOHN MCVIE has revealed he has been diagnosed with cancer. The news is forcing the group to cancel upcoming shows on its world tour.
The band posted the announcement on their FACEBOOK page, but did not disclose details about MCVIE's cancer -- simply stating he 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," the band wrote. "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."
