  • Elvis Costello recovering from cancer surgery

Elvis Costello has revealed he's recovering from cancer surgery.

The singer-songwriter went under the knife in May, but made a decision to go ahead with his tour dates in June.

Costello - whose real name is Declan Patrick MacManus - said it was "impossible to judge how this advisory would line up with the demands on a travelling musician, playing 90-minute to two-hour-plus performances on a nightly basis".

For the past few weeks, Costello has been playing live shows while recovering from cancer surgery.

Costello had been due to perform in Manchester on Friday (July 6) and the remaining dates affected were for performances in Croatia, Austria, Norway and Sweden.

According to the BBC, the 63-year-old musician underwent surgery in May to remove a "small but very aggressive" tumor.

Having apologised to his fans and thanked them and his bandmates the Imposters for their support, Costello concluded his statement with "some more optimistic news".

While Costello noted that post-surgical guidelines recommend around a month's recovery time "depending on whether you are returning to a desk job or an occupation that involves physical work or travel", he resumed his tour and noted that he was "almost fooled into thinking normal service had been resumed". He said "therefore, I must reluctantly cancel all the remaining engagements of this tour".

Costello, whose hits include "Alison" and "Oliver's Army", urged men to go to their doctors if they had symptoms they were anxious about.

In his statement he also announced "a magnificent new record of which we are truly proud", recorded with his band the Imposters, and planned for release in October.

"Seek your doctor's advice if you are in doubt or when it is timely and act as swiftly as you may in these matters", he advised.

'It was impossible to judge how this advisory would line up with the demands on a traveling musician, playing 90-minute to 2-hour plus performances on a nightly basis but by the time we reached the Edinburgh Playhouse, I was nearly fooled into thinking that normal service had been resumed'.
