Costello cancer scare
MUSIC Legend Elvis Costello has cancelled the remaining dates on his European tour after being advised to rest following surgery for a “small but very aggressive cancerous malignancy”.
The 63-year-old said he had initially undergone a single operation and that following the procedure he was “elated and relieved that our European summer tour could go ahead”.
But he has since been told he needs a recovery period of four to six weeks.
Costello said: “My specialist called me and said, ‘You should start playing Lotto’.”
