The veteran musician's health is probably why the group scraps the tour, which was scheduled to open in Boston this week and run through January 2015.

Bob Weir and his band Ratdog have abruptly scrapped all their upcoming tour dates. The guitarist and co-founder announced the cancellation in a statement posted on Ratdog's Facebook page over the weekend.

"Circumstances have necessitated that all scheduled tour dates for Bob Weir & RatDog are being canceled," the statement read. "Refunds are available at place of purchase. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience."

It's still unclear what circumstances have prompted the group to cancel their tour, which was supposed to open in Boston later this week and include an appearance in Jamaica in January 2015. However, some fans are speculating that Weir's health is the main reason behind the axed gigs.

Last month, the 66-year-old musician missed a Ratdog show at The Palms casino and hotel in Las Vegas due to an illness. Last year, he fell onstage during a New York concert with Furthur, a band he formed with fellow Grateful Dead member Phil Lesh.
