"And so my doctors are instructing me to take the rest of the year away from the stage in order to fully recover," the "Barracuda” singer continued, revealing Heart’s Royal Flush Tour, originally set to kick-off in Cleveland on Tuesday, July 30 and run through December, would be canceled.

“To the ticket buyers, I really do wish we could do these gigs," Ann said. "Please know that I absolutely plan to be back on stage in 2025. My team is getting those details sorted & we’ll let you know the plan as soon as we can.”

She then shared her gratitude to fans for their support and said she'd be back onstage soon.

“This is merely a pause. I’ve much more to sing,” Ann concluded. “Love, Ann Wilson. Respectfully, this is the last public statement I’d like to make on the matter.”

On Heart's official Instagram page, the band shared the statement: "More information to be announced in the coming weeks."

Recently, Ann and her sister Nancy, 70, had announced the cancellation of several June and July European concerts due to health concerns.
