FLEETWOOD Mac have cancelled planned performances in Australia and New Zealand after revealing bassist John McVie is being treated for cancer.

Band members Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham said in a statement that they were sorry to cancel the 14 show dates and hoped "fans everywhere will join us in wishing John and his family all the best".

Band spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg didn't specify what type of cancer McVie (67) has.

Fleetwood Mac recently finished a European tour and the New Zealand and Australia shows were planned until December 7. The band are also due to perform in Las Vegas on December 30.
