Heart have postponed the remainder of the North American leg of their Royal Flush Tour after lead singer Ann Wilson revealed she has been diagnosed with cancer.

“I recently underwent an operation to remove something that, as it turns out, was cancerous,” Wilson said in a statement posted on Instagram. “The operation was successful & I’m feeling great but my doctors are now advising me to undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy and & I’ve decided to do it.”

She added that her doctors are advising her to take the rest of the year away from the stage in order to fully recover.

“To the ticket buyers, I really do wish we could do these gigs. Please know that I absolutely plan to be back on stage in 2025. Thank you all for the support. This is merely a pause. I’ve much more to sing,” Wilson said. Heart promised fans that their tickets will be valid for rescheduled dates in the future.

The band had earlier canceled European tour dates.
