Heart’s tour is postponed due to Ann Wilson’s cancer treatment

Heart had many scheduled tour dates in 2024 alongside bands like Cheap Trick, Def Leppard and Journey. But now the band announced that the tour will need to be postponed due Ann Wilson’s health issues. She announced that she underwent an operation to remove “something” that was cancerous. The doctors now advised her that she should undergo a course of preventive chemotherapy.


Ann Wilson talked about her health and Heart’s tour in an official statement:

“Dear friends, I recently 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 preventative 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.”

She continued:

“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. Love, Ann Wilson.”

“Respectfully, this is the last public statement I’d like to make on the matter,” Ann Wilson said.

Heart’s social media also released an official statement saying: “As of today, Heart’s Royal Flush tour is postponed due to medical reasons. Fans are encouraged to hold on their tickets as they will be honored for the rescheduled dates. More information to be announced in the coming weeks,” the band said.

Heart was formed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada back in 1973 and remained active until 1998. They reunited from 2002 to 2016, in 2019, and were active once again since 2023. Their most recent album is “Beautiful Broken” released in 2016.

Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions.
