Fleetwood Mac cancel tour as John McVie battles cancer

Fleetwood Mac were set to play 14 dates in Australia and New Zealand in November, but the band announced on their Facebook page early Sunday that, due to health issues, the tour has been canceled. Bass guitarist John McVie is battling cancer and is undergoing treatment during the tour dates.

“We are sorry to not be able to play these Australian and New Zealand dates,” the band said in a statement. “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 Facebook statement refers to McVie as “one of the co founding and original members of Fleetwood Mac,” though he replaced temporary bassist Bob Brunning shortly after the band’s formation in 1967.

Chris Brown concerts canceled in Canada

The promoter of four Chris Brown concerts in Canada scheduled this summer says the events have been canceled.

Stephen Tobin, owner of Drop Entertainment Group, said Monday that the decision was made after consulting with Brown and in light of his recent personal and health-related issues.

The R&B star had his probation reinstated Friday after he was involved in an alleged hit-and-run accident. The hit-and-run charge was dismissed earlier.

Brown also suffered a seizure earlier this month.

Musicians without health care: Ailing members of School of Seven Bells and the Replacements shine a spotlight on needy artists

About a month ago, Benjamin Curtis (above)—half of acclaimed New York indie-pop duo School of Seven Bells and formerly of Texas rockers Secret Machines—was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer that attacks the immune system.

The silver lining is that Curtis’ particular affliction is treatable. However, like many cancer treatments, it’s prohibitively expensive, especially for an indie musician without health insurance. That’s why his School of Seven Bells bandmate Alley Deheza has launched Support Benjamin Curtis, a website that will take donations to help pay for Curtis’ treatment.

“These next few months will be tough, but [Curtis] is the toughest person I know (even while here, he was trying to figure out a way to sample the MRI),” Deheza wrote on the site. “I wanted to share this with you all, because you guys are such a huge and important part of our lives. Send all of the light and love that you can his way. Every bit will count towards a strong and fast recovery.”

Health care is a burden for everybody, and it hits musicians particularly hard. READ FULL STORY

Morrissey cancels U.S. tour due to health problems

After several health-related postponements, Morrissey has decided to cancel the remainder of his North American tour dates.

His publicist sent out a message last night, noting “The singer has suffered a series of medical mishaps over the past few months including a bleeding ulcer, Barrett’s esophagus, and double pneumonia.”

All told, the British singer is calling off 22 dates, including stops in Chicago, Nashville, Atlanta, Dallas, Las Vegas, and San Francisco. According to the press release, refunds will be available at the point of purchase.

Moz has been making quite a bit of noise during this particular jaunt. He stood up Jimmy Kimmel as a protest against his fellow Jimmy Kimmel Live! guests from the show Duck Dynasty, then called out artists like Beyoncé and Paul McCartney in a series of rants. Along the way, his health has betrayed him, though he did manage to pull off a high-profile show at Los Angeles’ Staples Center that featured almost no meat products for sale at concession stands. (Morrissey is a militant vegetarian.)

Check out the full list of canceled tour dates below.
