2018-07-07 20:08
British singer-songwriter Elvis Costello canceled the remainder of his European tour on July 6. He revealed he had undergone surgery for cancer. Costello, 63, said he had been forced to call off the final six dates of his tour. His doctor advised him to take a break and rest. [Singer-songwriter, Elvis Costello] 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. Costello rose to fame in the 1970s and produced a string of influential albums. He was slated to perform in Britain, Croatia, Austria, Norway, and Sweden.
