Elvis Costello Cancels Tour Dates After Cancer Treatment
Updated: July 6, 2018
Elvis Costello cancelled the remaining six dates of his European tour on doctor’s recommendation following treatment for a “small but very aggressive cancerous malignancy,” the singer said in a note on his website.
However, Costello, 63, struck a reassuring tone in his characteristically verbose message to fans, apologizing for the cancelled shows but also announcing that he has completed a new album slated for October.
“Six weeks ago my specialist called me and said, ‘You should start playing the Lotto,’” he wrote. “He had rarely, if ever, seen such a small but very aggressive cancerous malignancy that could be defeated by a single surgery. I was elated and relieved that our European summer tour could go ahead.
“Post-surgical guidelines for such surgery, recommend three weeks to four weeks recovery depending on whether you are returning to a desk job or an occupation that involves physical work or travel,” he continued. “It was impossible to judge how this advisory would line up with the demands on a traveling musician, playing 90-minute to 2-hour plus performances on a nightly basis but by the time we reached the Edinburgh Playhouse, I was almost fooled into thinking that normal service had been resumed. … The spirit has been more than willing but I have to now accept that it is going to take longer than I would have wished for me to recover my full strength. Therefore, I must reluctantly cancel all the remaining engagements of this tour.”
