Costello cancer scare

The Sunday Times - - Confidential -

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’.”
