Yes (the band): Tour Cancellation

For all of the prog-rockers out there (like me), some bad news came down the wire late yesterday with regards to the North American leg of their 40th anniversary tour:
The classic rock band Yes has canceled its 40th anniversary tour following frontman Jon Anderson's severe asthma attack last month.

The 63-year-old singer, who's since been diagnosed with acute respiratory failure, was ordered by doctors last weekend to rest for at least six months "or suffer further health complications," it was announced Wednesday in a statement released by representatives for the band and Live Nation, which was presenting the tour.
I was certainly looking forward to seeing them again, especially with Oliver Wakeman following in his father's footsteps (or fingers, as the case may be). In the meantime, it's warm wishes to Jon for a full respiratory recovery.
