Nazareth is bringing their Canadian tour to an unexpected, abrupt end because frontman Dan McCafferty is sick.  The "Cranbrook Daily Townsman" says problems started with the group's show in Cranbrook last Tuesday, when McCafferty collapsed on stage moments after Nazareth kicked off the concert. 

Local promoter Isaac Hockley told the newspaper that McCafferty was having breathing problems, which led to his collapse. 

The group's subsequent shows have been cancelled.  While Nazareth hasn't made an official announcement about the tour or McCafferty's condition, posts on the venue websites for upcoming dates all indicate Nazareth won't be appearing as scheduled.
