Charles Bradley has cancelled all upcoming shows after being diagnosed with cancer.

The Screamin' Eagle of Soul is currently out on the road, touring his remarkable new album 'Changes'.

In a fresh statement, though, Charles Bradley has confirmed that he will take time off to fight cancer. Doctors uncovered a cancerous growth in his stomach, with the 67 year old singer currently undergoing treatment.

In a statement Charles Bradley explains:

"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."
