In a Youtube video posted on July 20th, Adam “MCA” Yauch announced that the Beastie Boys will delay their upcoming album and tour as he undergoes treatment for a salivary glad tumor. Yauch was upbeat, saying that the tumor was “very treatable”, and that it would not affect his vocal chords. The procedure to remove the tumor and the radiation treatment afterwards may take weeks, not including recovery time. The Beasties have promised to reschedule dates, as well as schedule a full tour to support the new album, “Hot Sauce Committee Part 1″.

The Beastie Boys will be performing at the Bonnaroo Music Festival June 13 in Manchester, Tennessee, and they are also scheduled to appear at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on September 24th. These are just two of the major venues the group plans to hit over the course of the summer to promote their newest studio album “Tadlock’s Glasses.”
The group is most famous for their 1998 album “Hello Nasty” featuring the singles “Intergalactic” and “Body Movin.” They won two Grammy Awards from the album for Best Alternative Music Album and for Best Rap Performance. Their next major success came around in 2004 with the release of their album “To the 5 Boroughs” featuring the hit “Ch-Check it Out”. The single reached #1 in the US Modern Rock Tracks and the Canadian Singles Chart.
They are currently in the process of completing their newest highly anticipated album, and plan to announce more tour dates in the weeks to come.
