Elvis Costello Reveals Cancer Diagnosis And Cancels Tour Dates

posted by Karena V. - 

Here's hoping for a speedy recovery. Elvis Costello has canceled his European tour after revealing that he is battling a "very aggressive" form of cancer. Costello has been told by doctors to rest after having surgery to remove a tumor a few weeks ago. According to a Facebook post, the cancer is small and "very aggressive" but could be "defeated by a single surgery". The Facebook message does offer some optimistic news, saying, "The Imposters and I - together with several of our other friends - have made a magnificent new record of which we are truly proud. It will be issued in October, I believe."
