It was with great sadness that we heard this week that Charles Bradley has had to cancel his forthcoming tour due to ill health.
The Daptone Recordings artist said in a statement on Facebook:
“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.”
Were sending healing vibes and wishing our favourite soul brother a speedy recovery. Here’s hoping Charles Bradley and His Extrodinaires make it make to Australia’s shores in the not too distant future.
Get well soon brother!
