The Beastie Boys have canceled their upcoming tour and postponed the release date for their new album, Hot Sauce Committee Part I, due to group member Adam Yauch’s diagnosis last week of a cancerous tumor in his left parotid (salivary) gland. The tumor was caught early and is treatable but will require Yauch to have surgery and weeks of treatment.
