Iconic guitarist Tony MacAlpine announced on Monday that he has been forced to postpone his upcoming tours in Asia and Australia because he needs to undergo surgery after doctors discovered a mass in his intestine that may be cancer.

He broke the new to fans with the following Facebook post: "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.

"Providing all goes well, it is our understanding I should be well enough to perform on the coming European tour. For Australia and Asia, we are working on rescheduling the shows. We will advise you as soon as possible when the new dates are booked." Read the full post with refund info etc here.
