Here's the complete text of the news release sent out this morning by Jazz St. Louis:
SONNY ROLLINS CANCELS JUNE 22 TOUHILL SHOW

ST. LOUIS, MO. Citing ongoing health issues, saxophone legend Sonny Rollins has canceled all June and July 2013 shows, including his June 22 St. Louis appearance at the Blanche M. Touhill Performing Arts Center.

Jazz St. Louis, presenter for the June 22 date, received the following official statement from Rollins after close of business on Thursday, June 6:

“This past spring, I was dealing with some respiratory issues that necessitated my canceling several concerts. I have been under a doctor's care, and we were hopeful that I would be able to return to performing in time for my scheduled concerts this month and next. However, I am still not in condition to perform, and regretfully I must cancel these shows."

All tickets will be refunded by the Touhill Performing Arts Center box office by calling 314-516-4949 or visiting the box office during regular business hours."
While this is, of course, a huge disappointment for St. Louis jazz fans, here's hoping for a fast and full recovery for Rollins.
