Jeff Cancels Concert, Needs Time to Heal-ey


For the second time this week, a singer has cancelled a concert due to illness.

Musician Jeff Healey has cancelled the performance of Healey's Jazz Wizards group scheduled for Centrepointe Theatre Saturday because of ongoing cancer treatment, the theatre has announced.

Healey's representatives said the musician was facing a longer than expected stay in hospital after recent treatment. Healey lost his vision as a baby because of cancer. Over the past three years he has undergone several surgeries to remove cancerous tissue from his lungs and legs.
Fans will be receieving refunds for the missed show. While they're disappointed, fans probably aren't upset with the singer. After all, Healey couldn't have seen this coming.
