Van Zandt cancels shows but also confirms live album

Van Zandt cancels


Little Steven Van Zandt

Suffering from sinusitis, Steven Van Zandt has cancelled all his currently scheduled shows except for two: Nov. 2 at the Chevalier Theatre in Medford, Mass.; and Nov. 6 at the Beacon Theatre in New York.

He also has announced that the New York show will be filmed for a future live album and DVD.

Van Zandt and his Disciples of Soul band had been scheduled to tour throughout October, mostly in The South and The Midwest.

“I thought I could shake this sinusitis, but it doesn’t seem to be going away,” he said, in a press release. “I’ve never canceled shows before. I feel terrible about this, but my doctors are telling me there’s just no way to continue right now. We were really looking forward to continuing this 90-show tour around the world. We want to thank the fans for all of their support. I really hope we can make up these dates someday somehow.”
