“Last fall I was diagnosed with stomach cancer. I’ve spent the last 6 months receiving chemo, radiation, and surgery,” he shared on Instagram. He didn’t go into specifics about expectations for recovery, but he kept the post hopeful writing, “So far, so good.” Keith had multiple upcoming tour dates scheduled over the summer, but those have been canceled. He didn’t mention the cancelations in his Instagram post, but he did explain, “I need time to breathe, recover and relax.” He added, “I am looking forward to spending this time with my family. But I will see the fans sooner than later. I can’t wait.”

Additionally, Keith was scheduled to appear twice in June, but both of those shows have been postponed. Ribfest would have been the inaugural, and it was scheduled to take place in Wheaton, Illinois, on June 17. The second would have occurred the next day, July 18, at the 29th Annual B-93 Birthday Bash in Grand Rapids, Michigan. To a statement made by a spokeswoman for Keith, these tour dates, along with others that had been planned for July, August, September, and November, will all be postponed.
