Man, sorry to see this news:
Elvis Costello has cancelled the remaining dates of his European tour as he recovers from surgery to remove a “very aggressive” tumour.
The singer-songwriter went under the knife in May, but decided to go ahead with his tour dates in June.
“The spirit has been more than willing,” he said in a statement announcing the cancellation.
“But I have to now accept it is going to take longer than I would have wished for me to recover my full strength.”
It sounds like he got a little lucky with his surgery, so I’ll keep my fingers crossed for him.
Anyway, it put me immediately in mind of the first verse of one of my favorite songs from This Year’s Model.
