    Fleetwood Mac co-founder and bassist John McVie, 67, has confirmed that he has cancer.

    As a result, the band has been forced to cancel tour dates in Australia and New Zealand.

    The band posted the following statement online: "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."

    ARTISTdirect wishes the best for McVie, as well. Get better soon, John!

    Readers, send out your best to John McVie. Prayers help!
