Singer Anastacia has been forced to cancel her 2013 European tour after being diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time in 10 years.
In 2003, the singer was diagnosed for the first time with breast cancer, but made a full recovery after surgery and radiotherapy. Now the cancer has returned.
She writes in a statement on Facebook, “I feel so awful to be letting down all my amazing fans who were looking forward to ‘It’s a Man’s World Tour.’ It just breaks my heart to disappoint them.”
The statement also says Anastacia will continue to write and record her new album while she receives treatment, and hopes to reschedule her tour as soon as possible. Her goal is to make a full recovery again.
Anastacia was supposed to play 13 dates across Europe, starting April 6 in London. All tickets will be refunded.
