Jeff Beck Cancels Tour Due To 'Emergency Medical Attention'

Jeff Beck had to cut short his European tour by doctor's order. On his official site, it was announced that the guitar legend had to seek "emergency medical attention," but did not disclose his condition.

"It is with the greatest regret that Jeff Beck has been forced to cancel the forthcoming European dates of his worldwide tour, set to begin in Austria on June 27," reads the statement.

"Following many months of international touring and after seeking emergency medical attention, Jeff will now undertake a short hospital procedure, and his doctors have instructed a complete break from performance for a total of six weeks. Following the treatment, Jeff will fulfill his U.S. tour commitments beginning in Missoula, Montana, on August 8."

"He sends his profound apologies to those fans who had bought tickets for the European concerts and very much looks forward to playing for his American audiences after he has completed his treatment."
