CHARLES BRADLEY CANCELS TOUR AS CANCER RETURNS

Soul singer Charles Bradley cancelled his remaining tour dates for the year. Bradley was stricken with stomach cancer last year and took a hiatus from touring. With treatment, Bradley went into remission and returned to the road in Spring. Unfortunately, the cancer spread to Bradley’s liver and he will be taking time off to focus on treatment and recovery. “I love all of you out there that made my dreams come true,” notes the 68-year old. “When I come back, I’ll come back strong, with God’s love. With God’s will, I’ll be back soon.”
