American Idol champion David Cook canceled two college campus shows in New Hampshire and Connecticut this week "to deal with personal family matters."
A short statement on Cook's website reads:
"We are canceling Monday and Tuesday's shows to allow David time to deal with personal family matters. Please respect his privacy at this time. David would like everyone to rest assured that we are working with the Universities to reschedule the shows that are missed."
Cook, 26, does not go into detail as to what the personal family matter is, but we do know his older brother Adam has been fighting brain cancer for over a decade.
A rep for Cook says he plans on resuming his tour Thursday. Meanwhile, Cook will appear in a taped performance on American Idol tonight. (Photo: WENN)
