Sadly Bruce Cockburn has been forced to cancel his upcoming tour of The Maritimes and a date in Quebec City.

Bruce was advised to cancel all of the concerts by his physicians due to his current bout of pneumonia that has also resulted in a partially collapsed lung.

Bruce was recently diagnosed after being admitted to a hospital in eastern Ontario shortly upon his return from a personal trip to Bolivia.

He is expected to make a full recovery and is currently resting well in Ontario.

Bruce had this to say: “I’m very disappointed to have to cancel this tour and know how inconvenient it is to many but I’m just unable to perform in this condition. I hope we will be able to reschedule all of the dates in the not too distant future. I’m looking forward to getting back to each of the cities and towns on the tour as soon as possible.”

The following are the canceled dates:
