R&B and soul legend Charles Bradley has been diagnosed with liver cancer and has canceled all upcoming tour dates.
The 68-year-old singer previously overcame a run with stomach cancer last fall and returned to touring, but learned that the cancer had spread to his liver. He was sadly forced to cancel 37 shows in total, but plans to take this time to focus on recovery so that he may return to touring.
A statement, including a full list of canceled tour dates, was released on the singer’s Facebook page, which you can view here.
“I love all of you out there that made my dreams come true,” says Bradley. “When I come back, I’ll come back strong, with God’s love. With God’s will, I’ll be back soon.”
