The recent health issues of Yes vocalist Jon Anderson has forced the band to cancel its summer tour, a 26-city North American trek that would have hit amphitheaters and arenas.
"In the wake of my recent respiratory attack, doctors have advised me to spend the coming months resting and recovering," Anderson said in a statement. "I'd like everyone know how deeply disappointed I am by this turn of events."
Anderson was diagnosed with acute respiratory failure last month after suffering from an asthma attack. Doctors suggested he take at least six months off as a result.
Ticket refunds for Yes' tour are available at the point of purchase. It's unknown if any dates will be rescheduled.
