McVie, 67, is one of the founding members of the group. Fleetwood Mac's tour was canceled just days before its New Zealand and Australia shows were set to begin. Unfortunately now John McVie will be undergoing treatment for his cancer, so the band is halted the tour.
CNN notes that the band had just completed the European leg of the tour, and there were 14 shows slated for New Zealand and Australia in November and December. So far no specific details regarding McVie's cancer have been revealed. The band apologizes to its fans, and hope that “fans everywhere will join us in wishing John and his family all the best.”
While fans are disappointed that Fleetwood Mac cancelled the tour, they certainly understand. Here's hoping John McVie fully beats his cancer and the group can hit the road again soon.
