    British singer Marianne Faithfull has been forced to cancel a string of gigs since she broke her back in an accident in California in July.

    She penned a letter to fans, writing: "I broke my back in July and hoped and prayed I would be better enough to be able to do the performance on 17th August, although it's not very long, but my recovery was going well. Alas, I have never been to the Lebanon (sic) though I know it through books. It looks like one of the most beautiful places in the world. I still hope to be able to come one day not too far away when I'm completely healed and have my dream to sing in Beirut come true."

    The singer and breast cancer survivor, 66, has also canceled shows in NYC and Chicago in September.

    Get better soon, Marianne!
