Beastie Boy Adam “MCA” Yaunch will undergo surgery next week to remove a cancerous tumor on his left salivary gland.
Yanch is expected to recover, but the group will have to cancel all of their scheduled concerts including the July 31st All Points West Festival in Liberty State Park.
“It’s a little bit of a setback but it’s something that’s very treatable,” Yauch said in a video posted Monday on the band’s Web site, beastieboys.com.
All Points West has not announced a replacement for the band yet. Check the festival website for more updates.
It’s good to hear that he will be okay!
