Donnie Iris cancels upcoming Youngstown show following cancer diagnosis

Donnie Iris has canceled an upcoming performance due to health issues.

The western Pennsylvania native announced on social media that he will not perform in Youngstown on June 21 with REO Speedwagon.

“Shortly after Donnie Iris’s sold out 80th birthday show in March, it was discovered that he had cancer. He’s got the best care, and everyone is very optimistic for his full return to health. He recently had surgery and his prognosis is good. But Donnie needs more time to heal,” the post states, in part.

Iris will resume his regular schedule on July 24 at Blossom Music Center with Foreigner and Loverboy, according to the post.

The REO Speedwagon concert is still scheduled for June 21 at The Youngstown Foundation Amphitheater. Levon will replace Donnie Iris and The Cruisers.
