Charles Bradley has announced the cancellation of all upcoming tour dates due to illness.
The beloved soul singer was diagnosed with stomach cancer last fall and, after undergoing treatment and beating it, he returned to the road this past spring. He began to feel run down during recent tour dates and learned that his cancer spread to his liver, though hasn’t returned to his stomach. 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."

Charles Bradley has made a name for himself as a riveting live performer and was named to the top spot on Paste Magazine’s Best Live Acts of 2015. He has taken his show to venues and festivals across the globe including Coachella, Glastonbury Festival and Primavera Sound. The Brooklyn-based 68-year-old released his third album, Changes, on April 1, 2016 via Daptone Records, which Rolling Stone calls one of the Most Anticipated Albums of 2016. The remarkable against-all-odds rise of Charles Bradley since the release of his 2011 debut album, No Time For Dreaming, has been well documented. He transcended a bleak life on the streets and struggled through a series of ill-fitting jobs before finally being discovered by Daptone’s Gabriel Roth. The year following the release of No Time For Dreaming was one triumph after another including a breakthrough performance at SXSW, several television performances and having the album named to many year-end “best of” lists. The soul singer’s ascent continued with the 2013 release of his triumphant second album, Victim of Love, which saw Bradley emerging from his past heartaches stronger and more confident, overflowing with love to share.
