Supertramp's Rick Davies Battling Cancer

(hennemusic) Supertramp have cancelled all dates for its upcoming "Supertramp Forever" fall European tour due to health issues affecting the band's founder, Rick Davies. Davies was recently diagnosed with multiple myeloma and has begun aggressive treatment to combat the disease.

"I was really looking forward to returning to Europe and playing with the band again," says Davies, "and I'm sorry to disappoint everyone who has overwhelmingly supported the upcoming tour. Unfortunately my current health issues have derailed me and right now I need to focus all of my energy on getting well."

Davies formed Supertramp in 1969 in London with Roger Hodgson. Marking the band's first live performances since their 2010 European tour, the "Supertramp Forever" concerts were scheduled to begin November 3 in Porto, Portugal and continue throughout 25 European cities. Read more here.
