the beastie boys cancel a bunch of HUGE shows

adam yauch, known as mca to beastie boys fans, has been diagnosed with a cancerous tumor, leading the band to postpone the release of their upcoming album, hot sauce committee part 1, and the cancellation of upcoming tour dates.

thankfully, the tumor is treatable, and it looks like he’s going to be okay. they posted a video to announce the situation to fans:

however, this does mean that there will be HUGE vacancies in the all points west, lollapalooza, outside lands, and acl festivals. it’s going to be veeeeeeeeeeeery interesting to see how organizers scramble to fill that spot.

stay tuned for updates. no one has anything yet. some guy at the tribune is waiting to hear back from c3. holy crap, i’m so excited. i’m…so….scared.

in other news, the acl schedule is out. talk about anticlimactic. the lineup seems much more lackluster than it did back when it was first released…
