Call it The Summer of Canceled Tours! John Mayer announced via his website earlier today that he'd have to cancel the rest of his shows of his European tour. He couldn't perform at Monday's show in Copenhagen and now Amsterdam, Madrid, and Manchester will have to forgo seeing Mayer, 32, live as he recovers (doctor's orders!) from an undisclosed illness.
Nevertheless, fans will be refunded in full for the now non-existent shows. Mayer will return stateside for the U.S. portion of his tour starting July 16 in Charlotte, NC.
But, Mayer is hardly the only one who's had to let down fans with an announcement like this. While Mayer only had to cut a few shows, Bono and Christina Aguilera had to completely abandon their tours. According to The New York Post, Aguilara, 29, pushed back her North American tour (which was slated to begin in July) to 2011 in order "to give her more time to rehearse."
U2 fans in the U.S. had to deal with the disappointment of not seeing the band's big shows this summer when front man Bono, 50, had to undergo emergency back surgery, MSN reported. The singer was apparently "heartbroken" that he could not hit the road to perform.
