After playing his first concerts in six years, Procol Harum's Robin Trower has announced that he is canceling his upcoming touring commitments due to health issues and an impending operation. 

Last week, Trower performed at Planet Rock's Blues Power Live in London, Gateshead, and Holmfirth in the UK. However, he has since released a statement informing his fans that his scheduled North American tour has been canceled.
