Angels frontman Doc Neeson has cancelled all of his tour commitments after being diagnosed with a brain tumour.

The 66-year-old Neeson was admitted to hospital over the Christmas/New Year period and will undergo intensive radiation and chemotherapy treatment for the next six to seven months.

A statement from the band reads: "The Angels would like to thank all the fans for their continued support and we wish Doc all the best for his treatment during this difficult time. The Angels look forward to seeing everyone again once Doc is given the all clear to return to the stage."

There are actually two versions of The Angels at the moment — Neeson's group, including longtime drummer Buzz Bidstrup, were set to begin a national tour on February 15.

A rival group, formed after Neeson's falling out with original Angels Rick and John Brewster, consists of the Brewster brothers and former Screaming Jets singer Dave Gleeson. Bizarrely enough, their next show is scheduled for February 16.

The band, best known for their debut hit, 'Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again?', originally formed in Adelaide in 1974. They've been cited by the likes of Guns N' Roses as a major influence.

Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
