Charles Bradley has been touring tirelessly in support of his recent album Changes, but he’s being forced to cancel all upcoming dates to focus on his health in the wake of a stomach cancer diagnosis. The 67-year-old soul singer announced the news on Facebook today, issuing the following statement:
In the past few months, I have had to cancel a number of shows due to illness, taking me away from my beautiful fans.
My doctors recently discovered a cancerous tumor in my stomach.
I’m getting the best medical care and we are all extremely optimistic. I will fight through this like I’ve fought through the many other obstacles in my life.
My upcoming tour dates will be postponed so I can concentrate on healing.
Thank you all for understanding. Music is how I share my love with the world, and the love that my fans have given back brings me so much joy. I look forward to seeing your gorgeous faces soon, and to continue to share my love through music.
Get well soon, Charles!
