Wayne F. Newton Cancels Dancing With The Stars Tour and Vegas Holiday Run Due To Heart Condition

We've got some sad news to report... our hero, Las Vegas legend Wayne F. Newton has been forced to cancel his holiday run at Harrah's as well as his participation in the Dancing With The Stars tour due to a viral infection to the heart.

Wayne contracted the virus that causes cardiomyopathy while touring Afghanistan in 2001 for the USO. Cardiomyopathy is a deterioration of the heart muscle (myocardium). People who suffer from cardiomyopathy have irregular heartbeats and are at risk for sudden cardiac arrest.

The Waynester had this to say:

This is just another little bump in the road. The doctors are a little more concerned than I am. Part of their concern is that I feel so good, I'm not taking this lightly. I really want to apologize to the fans that were going to see me in those shows. I'm terribly apologetic. And for those who want to paint this situation with a black brush, they're not going to get their wish. I'm going to be fine.

Doctors say Wayne will be back in action in two months.

Here's to a speedy recovery for Mr. Las F. Vegas!
