Earlier this year, Charles Bradley mapped out an extensive North American tour after beating stomach cancer. However, the Screaming Eagle of Soul has now cancelled the fall stretch of dates due to illness.

A statement from Bradley's camp notes that the singer began to feel "run down" during the recent tour and eventually learned that his cancer had spread to his liver. While it hasn't returned to his stomach, Bradley will be "taking time off to focus on treatment and recovery."

"I love all of you out there that made my dreams come true," Bradley said in a statement. "When I come back, I'll come back strong, with God's love. With God's will, I'll be back soon."

Shows on the cancelled run included Canadian stops in Halifax and Vancouver. You can find the complete itinerary below.
