The “Screaming Eagle of Soul,” Charles Bradley, has cancelled his upcoming concert tour. The incredible Daptone Records recording artist was diagnosed with stomach cancer last year. After beating it, he returned to touring last spring.

According to a statement on Bradley’s Facebook page, “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.”

Making a name for himself as a riveting live performer, he’s taken his show to venues and festivals across the globe including Coachella, the Glastonbury Festival, and the 50th Anniversary Monterey Pop Festival. Bradley’s also performed on famed stages including the Apollo Theater—the same place he saw his idol James Brown perform when he was 14 years old, and the Beacon Theatre where he’s separately supported The Tedeschi Trucks Band, and the Afghan Whigs.

“I love all of you out there that made my dreams come true,” says Bradley. “When I come back, I’ll come back strong, with God’s love. With God’s will, I’ll be back soon.”

Check out Bradley’s magnificent, soulful cover of Black Sabbath’s 1972 ballad, “Changes.”
