Sharon Jones Cancels Basilica Show After Cancer Diagnosis

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings have canceled their album release and their 2013 tour, which included headlining at the Cities 97 Basilica Block Party, after Jones revealed that she has been diagnosed with stage-one bile duct cancer.

It is expected that an immediate surgical solution will lead to a full recovery for Jones.

The Basilica Block Party will announce a replacement headliner for the Saturday, July 13 show.

Tickets are currently available at The Electric Fetus, through Ticketmaster, by phone at 800-745-3000, and in-person at all Ticketmaster locations.
