Heart’s remaining “Royal Flush Tour” dates have been postponed after lead singer Ann Wilson announced a cancer diagnosis.

In a statement, Wilson said she “underwent an operation to remove something that, as it turns out, was cancerous.”

She said the operation was a success but doctors have recommended a course of chemotherapy, forcing the postponement of the tour and the cancelation of Heart’s support spots on the Journey/Def Leppard stadium run.

“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,” Wilson said.

Tickets for the postponed shows will be honored on the rescheduled dates.

Highlights from the tour thus far include a $581,009 gross on 6,912 tickets at Baltimore’s CFG Bank Arena May 13.
