Tony MacAlpine posted on his Facebook page that he is regrettably canceling his upcoming tours of Asia and Australia.
Last week I was taken to the hospital with severe stomach pains. Following blood work, multiple MRI scans and various procedures, medical doctors discovered a large mass in my intestine, and it seems likely that we are dealing with cancer. My doctors have advised me that this will need to be dealt with immediately, and I am scheduled for surgery this week. Recovery from this surgery will take a month – right when I was scheduled to tour the Australasian region.
The #greatguitar staff (and I’m sure all fans of guitar music) wish him a speedy recovery!
