Ann Wilson announced June 2 that she underwent an operation to remove something that turned out to be cancerous. She is doing fine, she told her fans, but is electing to undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy as advised by her doctors.
“And so my doctors are instructing me to take the rest of the year away from the stage in order to fully recover,” Wilson said in a statement shared on her Instagram account.
“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. 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,” the statement continued.
Heart is known for hit songs such as “Alone,” “Barracuda,” “Crazy on You” and “Magic Man.” They have sold more than 35 million albums since debuting in the ’70s and were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2013.
