We are disappointed to announce the cancellation of our upcoming European tour.  Sharon is doing well, but must undergo a medical procedure related to her cancer and the recovery time will conflict with these European dates.  It’s been too long since we visited our European fans and we will try to get back to Europe as soon as possible.
