Licensed to Ill: Beastie Boys Cancel Tour, Push Back Album Due to Tumor


The Beastie Boys are canceling their tour and postponing their album after Adam “MCA” Yauch was diagnosed with cancer last week, according to the announcement video they posted on their site. That includes their performance at All Points West, a publicist just confirmed to us, meaning that the festival is currently without a first-day headliner. In true Beastie fashion Yauch apologized to fans, ending with a straightforward “So that’s what’s up.”
