Michael Bolton has canceled several concerts following surgery for a brain tumor which was diagnosed just before Christmas. This was announced by the 70-year-old American pop singer himself, very popular in the 80s and 90s, reassuring fans that the operation was “successful”.
The singer posted the news on Instagram, telling fans that he learned of the tumor at the end of the year: “Just before the holidays, it turned out I had a brain tumor, which required immediate surgery,” he wrote. “Thanks to my incredible medical team, the surgery was a success. I am now recovering at home and surrounded by the enormous love and support of my family.” Bolton explained that in the coming months he will have to concentrate on recovery and therefore he will have to miss several commitments. From the beginning of February he was supposed to start a tour in various cities in the United States, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
The Connecticut singer has sold more than 75 million albums worldwide with hits like “When A Man Loves A Woman” and last September he was awarded a Grammy.
