A post early this morning from Fleetwood Mac‘s Facebook page reveals sad news that John McVie has been diagnosed with cancer, and the band will be canceling their remaining tour dates.

The full post from their Facebook 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.’

In September, John’s former wife, keyboardist Christine McVie, briefly joined the band for a long-awaited full reunion. Watch replay of Fleetwood Mac playing “Don’t Stop” below. Oh the cruel irony.
