Calvin Harris cancels remaining U.S. tour dates, unleashes summer dance anthem early with 'I'm Not Alone'

Calvin Harris, the Scottish singer-producer who is known for his quirky, catchy and wry singles such as "Acceptable in the 80s," has canceled his remaining U.S. and Canadian tour dates due to a "viral and chest infection that hasn't shown any sign of improving," according to his management. The 25-year-old managed to play only the very beginning of the teaser tour, and will not make upcoming DJ dates in Chicago, Toronto or Miami, where he had planned to play a high-profile gig tonight at the annual Winter Music Conference confab (not that any of the clubs he was set to play at have updated their websites to reflect that fact, or anything). The still-sick musician recently called it a "disastrous U.S. tour attempt" on his Twitter account.

The bad luck will make it harder for Harris to pick up new U.S. fans, which is too bad; the up-and-coming producer has cooked up what may well end up being the summer anthem for dance music aficionados
