Beastie Boy Adam Yauch’s announcement

The Beastie Boy’s Adam Yauch was recently diagnosed with cancer in his salivary gland.

Fortunately, his voice will not be affected.

The Beastie Boy’s tour dates have been canceled and their new album, “Hot Sauce Committee Part 1,"will have its release date (originally mid-September) postponed.

Their appearance at Lollapalooza has been canceled.  The Yeah Yeah Yeahs will take over the status of headliner.

More information can be found in his video announcement posted here.

We at WKNC 88.1 are bummed out big time about this and we wish for Adam to have a full recovery so he may continue rocking our faces off.
