Heart Postpones North American Tour Dates as Ann Wilson Undergoes Cancer Treatment

Rock legend HEART announced the postponement of all remaining shows on their headlining Royal Flush Tour and Journey/Def Leppard Stadium Tour.  The Royal Flush Tour, originally scheduled for Tuesday, August 27 at Scope Arena, has been postponed due to medical reasons.

In a public statement, Ann says:

Dear friends, 

I underwent an operation to remove something that, as it turns out, was cancerous.

The operation was successful & I’m feeling great but my doctors are now advising me to undergo a course of preventive chemotherapy & I’ve decided to do it. 

And so my doctors are instructing me 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. My team is getting those details sorted & we’ll let you know the plan as soon as we can. 

Thank you all for the support.

This is merely a pause.

I’ve much more to sing. 


Ann Wilson 

Respectfully, this is the last public statement l’d like to make on the matter.
