Heart Lead Singer Ann Wilson Reveals Cancer Diagnosis and Postpones Tour: Fenway Park Show Delayed Until 2025 Due to Health Battle

Boston, Massachusetts – Ann Wilson, the lead singer of the iconic rock band Heart, has recently announced that she is battling cancer. As a result, the band has made the difficult decision to postpone the remaining shows on its Royal Flush Tour, including a highly anticipated performance at Fenway Park. Wilson revealed that she underwent surgery to remove a cancerous growth and is currently in the process of recovering. However, her doctors have recommended preventive chemotherapy and advised her to take a break from performing to focus on her health.

Expressing her regret to the ticket holders, Wilson assured fans that she is committed to returning to the stage in 2025. She emphasized that the postponed shows will be rescheduled, and all previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new dates. Despite the setback, Wilson remains optimistic about her future performances, stating, “This is merely a pause. I’ve much more to sing.”

The decision to postpone the shows affects over 50 scheduled performances at stadium and arena venues across the United States and Canada. Some of the shows were set to feature guest performances from Def Leppard and Journey, although it is unclear if they will join Heart at the rescheduled performances. The band, led by Ann Wilson and her sister Nancy Wilson on guitar, previously had to cancel the European leg of their tour due to a necessary medical procedure that required a minimum recovery time of six weeks.

Known for hits like “Magic Man,” “Crazy on You,” and “Alone,” the Wilson sisters have been making music together since the 1970s. Despite the challenges they are currently facing, their contributions to the music industry have been recognized with a lifetime achievement award from the Recording Academy in 2023. Fans and fellow musicians alike are sending their support and best wishes to Ann Wilson as she focuses on her health and recovery during this challenging time.
