"Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires have spent the majority of 2016 on the road in support of Bradley's latest album -- Changes. They have had to cancel several shows recently due to health concerns and now, we regret to announce that Charles' doctors have discovered a cancerous tumor in his stomach. Upcoming tour dates will be canceled, as he needs to take time off for treatment and recovery."
"The 67-year old soul singer has always been a fighter and is determined to come back stronger and with even more love to give."
Along with the announcement came message for his fans from Charles Bradley himself:
"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."
Charles Bradley released Changes in April of this year.
